Advanced Computing Center at UT Austin
The Advanced Computing Center at UT Austin wants to learn how upper elementary teachers integrate computer science (or why they do not integrate it) into their classrooms. If you teach or know people who teach at the elementary level in Grades 3-6 in the United States, please take/share the survey linked here. Your responses will be kept confidential by the UT team and the survey findings will be reported in aggregate across all respondents. To show appreciation for your time and participation, all eligible teachers who complete the survey will be entered into a random drawing to win a $25 Amazon gift card. A total of 20 gift cards will be given. We really value your input!
