The Classrooms, Not Computers Campaign had an amazing first webinar. Alison McDowell (www.wrenchinthegears) took attendees through a one-and-a-half hour in depth discussion about how education corporations are pushing computer-based learning on students and data mining while crowding out classroom-based instruction. We explored how governmental and private interests are pushing for more technology driven solutions to the problems facing our public schools and our students, even though studies show online learning is less effective. As requested by popular demand, the recorded session is available- LINK CLICK HERE.
It’s not too late to get involved or informed.
We have received numerous requests to have continued webinars, so stay tuned so you ever have to miss another webinar, by signing up at https://myaccount.maestroconference.com/conference/register/EPSABDST2VZ3OVVI
Planning in is the works right now for a webinar in August (date TBD) and Sept 11th(topic will be “Building National and Local Efforts to reclaim Our Classrooms and Our Children’s Privacy and Data”. We are looking for active local support from parents, teachers and community members who can help build this campaign from the ground up. Remember: these are our children, our schools, and our communities—they do not belong to global private interests for profits. Let’s work together to stem the tide of Ed Reform 2.0 (corporate colonization).
