Technology Integration Survey Request
While you are enjoying your summer take a few minutes to contribute to this very worthwhile research at FSU!
The Florida State University PALM Center would like to invite you to participate in a survey. We are interested in gathering information from school librarians on how they are integrating technology in their schools. While there are no direct benefits to individual subjects, we hope the information obtained will help national organizations, policy makers, and researchers further articulate this role. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. There are no foreseeable risks associated with this project. However, if you feel uncomfortable answering any questions, you can stop answering questions on the survey at any point without being penalized.
If you agree to participate in the study, you will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Amazon.com gift card. If you decide NOT to participate in this study, you will NOT be penalized. Research staff will only use your name and address (if provided by you) to send you additional information or for the drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card, if you indicate you are willing.
It is very important for us to learn your opinions so that we can better articulate the role of the school librarian in technology integration. Your survey responses will be strictly confidential to the extent provided by law. Your name and contact information will not be shared with anyone outside the research project. All information from the study will be presented in the aggregate: no individual responses will be used.
If you would like to participate in this research project, the survey can be accessed at http://palm.pnmi.com/. Please complete the survey by July 1, 2010. We are sending this to a number of lists. Please excuse the cross posting. Thank you for your help.
