Tools for Parents
As school districts across the United States have adopted edtech, a movement to reduce its overuse has emerged. This section of the Kit covers ongoing parent organizing activities around the country and resources created by those groups.
In most cases, the first thing for concerned parents to do is to set up a meeting with school or district administrators to ask questions about edtech policies and practices in their kids’ classrooms. Once you’ve done that, start contacting other parents to ask for their support – a group of parents is more powerful than an individual.
The documents below offer background information on edtech that you can distribute to other parents or school administrators, templates to adapt for your own use, and more. This section has three subsections: What Parents Should Know about Edtech, Tools for Local Action, and Edtech Fact Sheets.
