ISTE Advocacy

we #act4edtech


We need your help!

The best way to ensure that policymakers recognize the importance of edtech is to continue advocating for it through simple yet highly effective actions like calling, tweeting, or sending pre-written letters about the need to invest at the federal and state levels.

Although it may be a slow process, it’s critical to the future of edtech funding. Our collective voices really can impact policy and funding. ISTE strongly encourages our community to take action and participate in our advocacy campaigns!
