Do you have . . .
One minute? Tweet! Enter your zip code at tweetcongress.org to find the Twitter handle of your U.S. representative and send him/her a tweet. Be sure to include your city and state and use the hashtag: #edtech
Two minutes? Spread the word. Send a customizable letter or email through the Ed Tech Action Network (ETAN) and share this website with 5 friends:
Five minutes? Develop an effective elevator speech. Imagine yourself in a situation where you unexpectedly are in contact with someone who could be very effective in raising support for educational technology. You have less than a minute to make a positive impression on this person. Learn how to make a compelling case.
Fifteen minutes? Educate yourself and join the conversation. Hear it from the source: Hilary Goldmann, ISTE’s Senior Government Affairs Officer, shares the latest advocacy news from Washington, D.C., as it happens.
Sixty minutes or more? Get involved with the advocacy activities for your state’s ISTE Affiliate. Join their Advocacy Committee. If they don’t have one, start one. Set up a meeting with a policy maker or their staff locally. Can’t get to D.C.? That’s okay. Policy makers have offices throughout the state and they or their staff will meet with you. It’s a great way to share your expertise and become the go-to person for advice.
