PreK-12 Digital Market Survey Report 2014
Schools are looking for new ways to engage students and provide them with a more rigorous education. At the same time, more personal computing devices and presentation tools are available in classrooms. Amid these trends, Simba Information initiated research on the use of digital
instructional materials, specifically core digital programs, online courses, supplemental software, video, games and apps.
PreK-12 Digital Market Survey Report 2014 looks at what digital instructional materials schools are using, what sources they are coming from, how frequently they are being used and for what purposes. For this report, Simba Information partnered with MCH Strategic Data on an Internet e-survey to understand schools' use of digital instructional materials.
The survey, which was directed at teachers in PreK-12 schools, contained 18 content questions and three qualifying questions. Respondents answered questions on currently used digital instructional materials, types of materials, use of specific programs, and future plans for using digital instructional materials.
This report is built around the survey and reflects the market condition at a specific point in timeas schools completed the 2013-2014 school year and prepared for the 2014-2015 school year. Simba's own ongoing research provided some added context to the analysis and commentary.
