Rowan-Salisbury in 2012 Digital School Districts Survey’s Top Ten

SHAILA on November 20, 2012

The Center for Digital Education, National School Boards Association and convergemag.com conducted the Eight Annual Digital School Districts Survey and announced the ten top ranking school districts recently. We are proud to note that Rowan-Salisbury Schools, a long term Mobicip customer, is ranked 9th in the survey.

All US public school districts are eligible participants of the survey. Winners were selected on the basis of how well they have evolved in digital education and their use of technology in communicating with students, parents and the community to bring about a qualitative improvement in operations.

Congratulating the winners of this year, LeiLani Cauthen, Vice president of Center for Digital Education said, “New and emerging technologies challenge the process of teaching, learning and the way education is managed. Survey responses reflect innovation in action, and how boards and districts are adapting curriculum, communication and collaboration by embracing digital technologies.” 

Findings of the Eight Annual Digital School Districts Survey

  • 75% of the survey respondents maintain a presence on social networking sites. 95% of these either have an active social networking policy in place or, are in the process of devising them.
  • Websites of the school boards/districts are increasingly turning transparent. The school board’s aims, plans, measures and annual progress get published regularly and parents can access their child’s progress report online.
  • 65% of the responding school districts have a digital curriculum comprising of e-textbooks, Web 2.0 tools, audio and video films (which include YouTube segments, TV programs) and instructional games.
