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!

Our collective voices can impact policy.

How will policymakers know that digital learning is important to their constituents if we don’t tell them?


“As educators, it's our shared responsibility to ensure we have the support and funding needed to use the most updated teaching tools. We must expect that all students have access to technology to prepare them to thrive in a digital world.”
