New America’s Lisa Guernsey, Director of the Learning Technologies Project and Director of the Early Education Initiative, and Shayna Cook, Program Associate with the Early Education Initiative, describe a current survey developed by New America’s Education Policy Program and the Joan Ganz Cooney Center in the EdCentral blog post “A Survey to Map Early Literacy Initiatives Assisted by New Technologies”.  According to this post, the survey seeks to examine programs that focus on early literacy development, specialized math and science vocabulary and school districts that use technology in programs to serve teachers, families, and students.  Data gathered from this survey will be shared this summer on an interactive map and “is intended to help policymakers and educators become aware of the challenges and benefits of using various types of new technologies in diverse settings, and to jumpstart conversations about what research is needed to determine what works.”
