eLearning Inside News announces Op-Ed Section
Starting today, eLearning Inside News we will be accepting submitted opinion articles from elearning and EdTech stakeholders.
Who can submit?
Op-Ed submissions from anyone who has a stake in education technology and eLearning initiatives. Maybe you’re the CEO of an established EdTech development company. Maybe you’re a 9th grade student with a unique take on your history teacher’s use of your school’s LMS. Maybe you’re a parent, teacher, EdTech researcher, administrator, IT expert, community organizer, or non-profit leader. If you have interacted with education technology in some way, we want to hear from you.
The ideal eLearning Inside News Op-Ed:
- Takes a strong stance on a relevant topic relating to EdTech or eLearning
- Backs up this strong stance with some form of reliable evidence
- Is between 500 and 1,000 words in length
- Prioritizes opinion over self-promotion
It’s alright to include links to sites and initiatives (and we would love it if you linked to our post as well) but these articles should first and foremost engage with ideas, topics, trends, and the EdTech community.
Send your Op-Ed submissions to [email protected] with the subject line: Op-Ed Submission.
