Digital Teaching and Learning Technology Inventory
UEN is conducting the fifth biannual Utah School Technology Inventory. Through this project, UEN and Connected Nation will collect data to help policymakers understand how educational technology supports classroom instruction in Utah.
The School Technology Inventory was first envisioned in 2015 when the Utah Legislature passed Senate Bill 222. This bill established a program that required an inventory of classroom technology and related resources being used in Utah’s public and charter schools.
In 2017, the Utah Legislature passed a second bill, House Bill 277, which established the state’s Digital Teaching and Learning Grant Program. The program made grants available to schools and districts to improve student learning outcomes and provide educators professional learning opportunities in digital teaching and learning. To assess the effect of these investments, UETN decided to continue the inventory every other year.
UEN and Connected Nation will conduct the inventory from October to November, and the final report will be released early 2024.
