Using tech for good: Tips and strategies for teachers on how we can help parents empower children with quality tech-based tools–in our classrooms and at home–to activate a child’s natural desire to learn and support their well-being. Discover how tech can help broaden children's’ world and reflect their experiences in our diverse global community.
In October 2023 we welcomed Jane Park who is currently a Senior Content Strategist for Google Kids & Families–and a Montessori Mom–to discuss how we can use tech to enrich the lives of children and their families. Jane is leading efforts to create high-quality online experiences for Google’s youngest users around the world. Her team focuses on designing technology that is grounded in the core developmental needs of children and has their best interest in mind.
Jane highlights the importance of digital equity and creating opportunities for all families to access fun, useful, and enriching experiences to support children's’ learning and development. She shares the latest tools and resources available to teachers to support parents as they help their children navigate the online world and learn to incorporate digital literacy principles.
