Randi Zuckerberg is the woman behind the amazing book and TV series Dot, and she’s got a message for parents about tech.
Randi Zuckerberg has an impressive resume: Harvard graduate. Director of Market Development at Facebook. TV commentator. Radio host. Broadway actress. Author of Dot Complicated: Untangling Our Wired Lives. Author of two great children’s books, Dot and Missy President. Editor in Chief of the Dot Complicated website. Founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media. Broadway and television producer, including the Sprout Network show based on her book, Dot. She’s also a mom to two young sons, who think she’s a rock star thanks, in part, to her TV connections!
We were thrilled to welcome her to the podcast to talk about women in tech, girls and STEM, and why parents should distinguish between “screen time” and “tech time.” We had a lot of fun talking with Randi, and really appreciate her non-fear-based approach to kids and technology.
