Save the Date -- PAA EdTech Webinar

PAA leaders Laura Bowman and Heather Hicks will be joined by Jean Rogers, Screen Time Program Manager for the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, and other advocates. We'll discuss the latest efforts by EdTech to take over teaching and learning, and offer some practical things that parents, teachers and others can do to stop the juggernaut.

Write those EdTech letters to the editor!

Most of our newspapers are writing a little about digital technology in schools these days, but few report mention any potential negative effects on our children.

We urge you to write a letter to the editor whenever you see a story like that. We can make a difference by alerting the public to the many questions surrounding EdTech.

PAA interim executive director Julie Woestehoff wrote such a letter which was published earlier this week in the Wyoming Tribune Eagle. You can also read it on the PAA web site.

Feel free to "borrow" anything from this letter! It makes writing so much faster.
