Students Before Screens, Teachers Before Tech!
In August, we published A Statement on EdTech and Education Policy during the Pandemic, signed by over 100 experts in education and technology, which called on schools to ensure that students get the offline time they need, no matter what learning looks like for them. Now, our latest resource provides educators, school officials, and advocates with the framework and the practical advice they need to make remote learning an offline success.
In “A Low-Tech Approach to Remote Learning,” we offer seven guidelines to help create meaningful educational experiences for students while limiting screen time during the remote school day. We also include tips for success and links to resources to make it easy for overworked educators to figure out what works best for students.
Whether you’re a teacher looking for guidance and inspiration as you manage remote classrooms, or a caregiver bringing these resources to your school administrators, we hope you’ll find this document helpful!

A Guide to Choosing Tech for your Preschooler
Navigating app stores to select appropriate media for young children can be overwhelming. With so many choices – and so much hype – it can be hard to know which apps are actually educational, age-appropriate and safe. So, we’re creating a three-part guide to help you make informed, healthy tech decisions for the children you love.
Introducing Safe, Secure, & Smart: A Guide to Choosing Tech for your Preschooler. Our first installment about choosing preschool apps includes 6 considerations for choosing apps, including what you need to know about how preschoolers learn, common claims from app companies to look out for, and how to keep kids safe while they play.
At CCFC, we believe that less tech and more hands-on, active, and creative play is most beneficial to young children. But we also know that no tech, never, is not a realistic solution for most families. So we created Safe, Secure, & Smart to help you select the right media for your child.
