Beyond academic benefits, EdTech empowers parents to actively participate in their children’s education. Parents become facilitators and mentors, navigating EdTech platforms, monitoring progress, and providing additional support. Seamless communication channels within these platforms facilitate collaboration with educators, allowing for valuable insights and strategies to optimize learning. EdTech also equips parents with digital literacy skills, crucial for supporting their children’s education in a digital world.

While EdTech offers significant advantages, challenges like technical issues, screen time management, and equitable access persist. Overcoming these obstacles requires active parental involvement and collaboration with educators. By embracing EdTech as a collaborative tool, families can cultivate a supportive learning environment where children thrive academically and develop into lifelong learners with the necessary skills for success in the 21st century. 

Produced by the Mastercard Foundation and Shega Media & Technology, EdTech Mondays brings together key figures in Ethiopia’s education for monthly insightful discussions.
