Telling Your Advocacy Story with Digital Tools

Using digital stories to deliver advocacy messages is an effective and efficient way to reach out to classroom teachers, school administrators, K-12 students, and their families.

We will share several examples and will use a digital advocacy story focused on coteaching and targeted to classroom teachers and principals as our primary example.
