When we launched the Screens in Schools Action Kit in February 2020, no one could have foreseen just how quickly education technology (EdTech) would spread to schools as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the distance learning disasters of the early days of quarantine now behind us, it's clear that solely relying on EdTech is not the answer for schools and students.

We recognize that remote learning may be with us for much of this school year and beyond, but that doesn't mean we have to accept expensive, ineffective EdTech as a new reality in distanced classrooms. As such, we find ourselves at a critical juncture for the future of education. That is why we will continue to fight for education that is driven by skilled teachers, not algorithms and gamified, data-collecting platforms. It is also why we will continue to update our resources and share them as broadly as possible. With this COVID-19 Resource Addendum, you'll find resources divided into three categories: EdTech Resources, Resources for Parents, and Resources for Educators.
