Get Involved in Ed Tech Advocacy!
Join ed tech advocates in Washington, D.C., April 12–13 for a dynamic summit covering U.S. policy trends and their potential impact on schools, districts, and states.
The summit will feature key policy makers and meetings on Capitol Hill.
It’s hosted by ISTE, the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), the State
Educational Technology Directors Association, and the Software & Information
Industry Association. To register online, go to iste.org/store/sumdmit.
Prior to the summit on April 12, ISTE will hold an ABC’s of Advocacy workshop. Participants will develop a plan for effective ed tech advocacy, build a
network of colleagues to call on for advice and support, and gain tools and
resources to shape the future at state and federal levels.
Speaking of advocacy, if you want to keep up with policy activity in the U.S. capital,
join the Elementary and Secondary Education Act Reauthorization Advisory Group.
