I was recently asked to help define what makes a mom tech savvy.
Hmmm….A Tech Savvy Mama is so many things.
Where do I begin?
To me, a Tech Savvy Mama is:
- someone who realizes that technology is an important piece of her child’s world and helps makes educated decisions about the best technology for her children.
- knowledgeable about qualities of good websites for children and carefully screens websites to ensure that they are age appropriate and educational for her children while not taking them to scary places on the internet through an abundance of ads.
- aware of the fact that she can use the software already on her computer to create learning opportunities for her children. She uses programs like PowerPoint and imports digital pictures, or photos of their artwork, to create customized digital storybooks for her children.
- someone who understands technology and the many issues that it presents for today’s children. She carefully balances computer time with free play, takes into account her child’s needs when purchasing a computer that they will use, and is knowledgeable about issues such as of ergonomics as they relate to children.
A Tech Savvy Mom is an educated consumer who wants her children to experience the best technology possible.
She may not consider herself Tech Savvy, but is always willing to learn through a quick Google search!
Whether or not you consider yourself a Tech Savvy Mama, what qualities do you think a Tech Savvy Mama should possess? Leave a comment!
