Good evening, all!

I am a new Director of Instructional Technology for a school district in Illinois that is greatly missing professional development in all realms including technology.

My role is to serve as the chief technology trainer for the K-12 District.  As part of my role, I have been asked to form a survey asking teachers what they want to learn more about.  Obviously I can form questions about the SIS, etc.  But what are some other questions to ask?

Any suggestions for questions for this survey?

Hi! I've used a tool developed by our county office of education, maybe you have something similar or you can contact them to see if they'll share the question list:
