THE Journal Re-Ups on K-12 Technology Coverage
(VIENNA, VA., April 5, 2016) - 1105 Media is pleased to announce that THE Journal, the premier resource for senior-level K-12 education technology professionals, has taken significant steps since the re-launch of their print product in January 2015 to increase their already expansive coverage of the K-12 technology marketplace. This includes the establishment of a successful Readers' Choice Award Program, the launch of two new industry surveys: IT Salary & Job Satisfaction and Teaching with Technology, and two new staff hires.
"The fact that we've launched back into print, that we're launching new research projects and awards programs and that we're now staffing up the editorial department shows exceptional momentum at a time when other publications are scaling back," said David Nagel, Editor-in-Chief of THE Journal . "We believe in education technology and in the promise it holds for the nation's schools, colleges and universities and the students they serve, and we're committed to the industry and supporting the education community."
In THE Journal's first ever Readers' Choice Awards, education technology professionals voted for the software, hardware and services they consider most vital to the job of educating and supporting America's 50 million K-12 students.
The IT Salary and Job Satisfaction Survey - the only one of its kind in the K-12 education space - polled educators' thoughts on their current career, future prospects, budget, salary and working conditions. The Teaching with Technology Survey will gauge the attitudes and experiences of America's educators toward the technologies they use in their classrooms. It will explore their preferences, level of confidence in their abilities, belief in technology as a teaching and learning tool and outlook for the future.
THE Journal is also adding two new editorial members. Richard Chang is the new Associate Editor, and has worked for the Los Angeles Times, Orange County Register, OC Metro and various arts and culture magazines. Sri Ravipati is the new Web Producer for THEJournal.com and CampusTechnology.com and has been an editor and copy editor on academic publications.
"Richard and Sri each bring a great set of skills to the position and will make valuable additions to our team. They'll be reporting on some of the most important topics in technology that are helping to shape the discussion around 21st century learning, from technologies that enable new teaching methods to issues surrounding the protection of student data privacy," said Nagel. "We welcome them to the team and are excited about the contributions they'll be making to our readers and the industry."
