Four leading education and education technology associations launched a print and radio public service announcement (PSA) campaign that asks the presidential candidates to make K-12 student access to education technology and modern learning environments a national priority.
The campaign, "One Giant Leap for Kids," was developed by the Consortium for School Networking, the International Society for Technology in Education, the National Education Association, and the State Educational Technology Directors Association.
The program is designed to emphasize to the presidential nominees that making investments in technology today is critical to ensuring the ability of U.S. students to compete and succeed in the 21st century global workforce.
The campaign also includes an online petition in support of making 21st century education a public policy priority. The petition is available at the EdTech Action Network Web site, http://onegiantleapforkids.org.
