The Election and EdTech
With the 2012 Election on the horizon, there will be a number of Congressional and Senatorial candidates trying to sway you to their side of the fence (and even more of your Facebook friends trying to do the same thing with their post updates). While many people may not partake in these opportunities because they have already made their voting decisions based on bumper stickers and campaign signs that have been littered up and down the street, we urge you to use this chance to connect with candidates concerning education technology, funding for these programs, which programs to partake in, etc.
Budget cuts, Common Core, E-Rate, and the Enhancing Education Through Technology Program, among others, are great topics of conversation at this time. While we hope that these issues receive due consideration during the upcoming presidential debates, the opportunity to converse with local candidates still stands, but it’s up to you to get involved. Make your opinions known!
