Our monthly digital magazine has a readership of more than 50,000 education leaders, teachers, and support personnel and more than 1.8 million users visited Tech & Learning in 2020. 

Those interested in pitching story ideas for Tech & Learning should read multiple articles to get an idea of our tone, approach, and the type of subjects we generally cover. Education News, How To, and Professional Development are among our most popular topics. 

When pitching, please note: 

  • We do not publish press releases or vendor bylines.
  • We look for stories that help our readers drive student success through the use of innovative tools and ideas. These stories should be in general and not just about the use of a specific product. (Find a good example of this kind of story here.) The byline should be an educator/customer, not a company representative.
  • We consider product suggestions for our "How to" that meet the following criteria: * Products recommended by our advisors and expert editors; * products that address topics most of interest to our readers based on website analytics tools; * products that have been available publicly for 6 months; * products that are FERPA and COPPA compliant.  
  • We only publish original and exclusive content that has not appeared in other publications, including on social media and personal blogs.
  • We do not accept or publish AI-generated content.
