Subject: Survey Help for Dissertation- Free Amazon or iTunes Gift Card for All Participants

Dear Math Educators,

I need your help with my dissertation research. I am a doctoral candidate
from Teachers College, Columbia University, and I am researching factors
that influence pre-service mathematics teachers' use of technology in
secondary classrooms. All participants who complete the online survey will
receive their choice of a $20 Amazon or iTunes gift code from me via e-mail
within 24 hours of completion.

The survey takes approximately 35 minutes to complete.

I am specifically looking for math teachers in New York State who received
initial certification (grades 7-12) within the past year or student
teachers currently working with grades 7-12 to participate in this study.

If you know a new math teacher or someone who is hosting a student teacher,
please let them know about this opportunity.

Participation in this study will help others understand how prepared
pre-service mathematics teachers as a whole feel regarding technology use
in the classroom. No names or names of schools are collected, and the data
is confidential.

You can access the survey here:

If you would like more information about this study or have any questions,
