99b Grant FAQs

Calling all K-12 Teachers, Admins and Teacher Preparation Institutions! We (U of Michigan, U of Missouri, and SUNY New Paltz) are conducting a national study to find out how well prepared you were (from teacher prep) to integrate technology into your teaching?

The survey is pretty short, less than 10 minutes, and it will greatly inform our teacher preparation institutions for the future! Please feel free to share the survey widely with your K-12 teachers and colleagues! 

You have until March 1, 2024 to complete the survey.
