Technology defines our world. Even before the COVID pandemic caused thousands of districts to experiment with distance learning, education was a sector primed for disruption through technology. One that would encourage life-long learning and self-improvement. One that would prepare students to accomplish tasks on their own, think independently, and self-schedule. One that would develop the skills to effectively use Internet resources, social media, video technology, and interpersonal communications. To create tomorrow’s citizens, employees, and economic drivers.
Founded in 2020, The Kids Educational Tech Foundation is based in Arlington, VA with an initial reach to schools and educational providers throughout Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, DC.
We work with school districts, principals, social workers, and parent liaisons to identify students with technology needs and use corporate and private donations to purchase new, quality technology tools such as Wi-Fi hotspots, laptops, and tablets.
