Research Study on the Educational Background of Designers/Developers of Software for Elementary, Secondary, or Higher Education
Dear OLPC community members,
I am writing to invite you to participate in a survey. This survey is part of a larger research study, which aims to provide a greater understanding of the educational experiences and needs of computing professionals who design and develop software used in K-12 (elementary and secondary) or higher education. Data collected will be used as part of a dissertation study and may also be included in research publications or conference presentations.
Depending on the nature of your experiences, the survey may take between 20 and 40 minutes to complete.
As a thank-you for your time, you will be offered the opportunity to be entered into a pool to win a $50 Amazon gift certificate. The chance of winning is approximately 1/50. In order to be entered into the pool, you will be asked for your email address at the end of the survey. You may also optionally provide an email address if you are willing to participate in a follow-up interview.
Should you choose to enter your email address, it will not be used for any other purpose and your responses will remain anonymous.
To participate in the survey, please go to the following URL:
If you have any questions about the study or procedures, please contact me at mexter at indiana dot edu.
