AT&T is also collaborating with Bookful, the leading 3D and augmented reality reading app, to provide AR experiences for a broad collection of children’s books that bring stories to life using AT&T 5G. New and existing AT&T customers can enjoy a 6-month free subscription, giving them access to an exclusive shelf of books and immersive 5G experiences.

How can AT&T help keep me and my kid safe? Students today use their devices to submit classwork, teachers use them to grade assignments and parents use them for just about everything else. As a growing number of these transactions take place online, you shouldn’t worry about annoying robocalls or second guess if you’ve clicked on a malicious site. That’s where AT&T ActiveArmor℠ can help.7

It brings all our security capabilities together to help stop threats before they get to you. This includes built-in 24/7 essential network security and additional benefits when you download the free AT&T Call Protect and Mobile Security apps. If you upgrade to Unlimited Elite® or Unlimited Extra℠ you get ActiveArmor℠ advanced security for no extra charge like Identity Monitoring, Safe Browsing, and Public Wi-Fi Protection.8

With many students returning to in-person classes, the AT&T Secure FamilyTM  smartphone app also gives parents a simple, centralized command center to manage their student’s online activity. Track their location to ensure a safe arrival or departure from school, pause their internet access during scheduled times such as in class or at bedtime and block inappropriate app and web content.9

How is AT&T making a difference in education? AT&T is addressing the digital divide through a $2 billion investment that will span the next 3 years and bring affordability, educational resources, and economic opportunity to the millions of Americans who don’t have broadband connectivity today.

And where would students be without their teachers? To celebrate their dedication and show our appreciation, we give teachers 25% off our best unlimited wireless plans. These savings apply to new and existing customers that are Kindergarten through post-secondary teachers, professors, instructors, and their families.

What are people saying? “Back to School is an exciting time and this year is more special than ever as many head back to the classroom. We want to prep students around the country for this important moment by offering our best deals on the latest devices. These deals will keep you and your family connected at home, at school and everywhere in between,” said Jennifer Van Buskirk, Senior Vice President of Wireless Marketing, AT&T.
