How can I help?

KnowledgeContext is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, so donations are tax deductible in the United States.  Developing and distributing curriculum to teachers and schools without charge requires support.  There are a variety of ways you can help:

  • Are you a teacher?  Use our curriculum in your classroom (or home-school).  There is no charge for this.  Just let us know what works and what you'd improve.  Send us a testimonial we can post.  Or invite us to give a teacher-training workshop at your district.

  • Are you a parent?  Look at the curriculum and share it with a teacher (or two).  Help them understand why it is important for young people to know how to understand and evaluate any technology using our brochure.  Clip newspaper or magazine articles your teachers can use to illustrate our relationship with technology.

  • Buy our book (or read it online) and share the ideas with parents, teachers, and friends in the media.  Help to arrange a radio / TV / newspaper / magazine interview with our executive director on the concepts in the book.

  • Invite us to keynote your conference (especially education-related conferences).  This promotes the concepts of critical thinking about technology in the form of entertaining stories.

  • Suggest new classroom activities.  Adapt these to other age-levels.  Suggest additional classroom assessments.

  • Join our team.  What role would you like to play in creating a society that can understand and evaluate technology?  Enhance our website?  Secure funding for training teachers or other projects?  Direct the corporation as a director?

  • Donate to our programs.  We welcome your donation through PayPal, a secure Internet payment service that accepts a variety of payment forms, including credit cards.  Just click on a button to the left, or you can mail a check to us.

  • Shop at Giveline, which donates a portion of your purchase to KnowledgeContext.

  • Donate-in-kind with products we need to reach students and their teachers.
