Are you a mom who loves all things technology? We’re looking for tech savvy moms who blog about electronics, Internet technologies, social media and gadgets.
Small But Kinda Mighty
On her personal blog Deanne Shoyer writes about her two autistic children and about iOS apps, with a particular interest in apps and other items that are useful for the special needs community. She also write app reviews for Smart Apps for Kids. I would say the most important thing is to be an active user of the technology your kids are using and to make learning a family activity that you enjoy together. If your child has an iPad for example, then familiarize yourself with all the device’s features, test apps before your child uses them and use the iPad together at least some of the time – play two player games, read book apps out loud – make sure you’re a step ahead of your child in terms of what a device can do. Seek out and socialize online with other tech savvy moms and share tips. In this high tech and information rich age, word of mouth and personal recommendations from people you trust have become even more important because they save us both time and money. Don’t be afraid to try new things because your kids certainly aren’t and if you don’t explore this world with them, they will do it alone and face hazards like inappropriate content, cyber-bullying or even online predators.
We provide app and book reviews as well as feature individuals, companies and products in the tech & book industry. I am a children’s picture book author and mom. Lilsugar of Popsugar chose my storybook, Penelope the Purple Pirate, as a Must-Have eBook. I always tell my friends who claim to not be very tech savvy that I started in this industry over 2 years ago not really understanding the whole app business and have had a huge learning curve since then! I claim that if I can learn about it – they can! There are so many great sites out there that provide updates on the newest technology, apps and eBooks. All you have to do is google certain topics about the Tech Industry and you will be a well-informed parent. You’ve got to love the ability of having so much information at our fingertips via the Internet!
Alison, Amanda, Grace and Mary are four mothers from different parts of the world dedicated to educating parents about the best digital stories, educational apps, fun games and technology products available for their children. Becoming “tech-savvy” is a skill that is learned over time and it takes commitment and dedication to keep abreast of the rapidly moving world of technology. Keep an open mind and don’t be afraid to have a go at the latest gadgets (ask your children, nieces and nephews if you can use theirs!). Also, if time and funds permit, try an Information Technology (I.T.) course at your local training college or do an online course, there are many free ones available!
Evolved Mommy is mostly nonsense peppered with useful tech tips and trends for over-worked, over-committed moms (and dads) who don’t have time to reinvent the wheel. Do not reinvent the wheel. Ask your friends or other bloggers who seem to know what they are doing. But, in that same spirit, always be available to help others. For example, your tech-savvy friend may want to learn how to knit or how to be a better writer or how to take great photos. When you get help always pay it back or pay it forward. My three-year-old daughter with discriminating app taste absolutely loves playing Mickey Mouse Road Rally on her iPad. The game has story elements plus interactivity that is spot on for a pre-schooler.
Like any other Mom,I wanted to make sure that my kids were safe both in the real & virtual world. This led me to think about other kids as well. So I joined McAfee’s campaign to keep Indian kids safe online by spreading awareness on cyber threats. The world of children is a world of colours, smells, adventures and imaginations. Unfortunately, children afflicted with visual illnesses miss out on so many things. Hence gadgets that make their world more meaningful are gadgets that I greatly admire. Like this B-Touch phone and book reader. It uses a touchscreen display for Braille. The B-Touch supports a navigation system and also has a book reader and an object recognizer. It is also programmed to function as a phone. Read more about it here: http://www.gizmowatch.com/entry/12-most-innovative-ways-to-make-the-blind-rejoice-worldly-pleasures/
A series of 4 review sites for 100s of digital book recommendations from a mom & educator. Includes iPad, Kindle, Nook & Android book app reviews. Also includes daily deals on the best iOS kids apps and the blog, The Digital Media Diet.
Real Advice straight from the heart, make money with a blog, learn about social media. I’m also a mom inventor. I’ll share my journey together we can grow 🙂 Come be inspired I also invented the Snuggwugg 🙂 Love to meet you @ my blog. You can learn a lot by using Google. Just check out apps or app reviews and you’ll learn a lot. Also pick up a trade magazine and you can see the latest gadgets that will be coming out soon or visit a trade show. I know they didn’t make the iPad for kids but every parent reading this right now knows that we all have given our kids the phone to keep them entertained at one time or another. Well most of us have. People are amazed that my daughter who is not even two yet can work my phone. She can search for pictures scroll, move, play movies people are amazed. I am too because I never showed her any of that she figured it out herself. It’s great because it’s also an educational tool I can play the alphabet songs or other things for her.
Fun Educational Apps
Review of kids apps for iOS devices. Apps are a great way for kids to learn the fun way. I offer review, news and giveaway. All age group covered
The iPhone Mom
I review apps for anyone looking to tap into the practical, personal or parenting potential of their iPad, iPod or iPhone. I also feature how-to tips, tech accessory reviews and a movie review now and again. Don’t be put off by the amount of gadgets and apps that are available! Sometimes, when looking for a new device or app, the amount of choices becomes overwhelming. Find a great review site to help make decisions when it comes to products. Explore social media and app stores. Once you start choosing a few apps, you will become more comfortable with the platform. Don’t forget to always be aware of how your children are using technology. Have an ongoing conversation about the do’s and don’ts with them.
Quick and easy tips and tricks to make life easier, more beautiful, and whole lot more fun! Whether you are tech savvy or a total newbie, Creative Geekery will show you countless ways to use your phone, tablet or computer in easy to swallow bits and bytes. I work with the assumption that the reader has no tech background so every post is accessible and super user-friendly. I am also available to answer questions via comments on my blog, Facebook or Twitter. My number one piece of advice to people who are stuck is to go to your favorite search engine and simply type in your question in plain English. For example, “How do I upload a video to YouTube?” Chances are someone else has had the same question and some wonderful person has taken the time to answer it. Pinterest and YouTube are also tremendous resources for tutorials.
The Well Connected Mom
Are you an over scheduled mom with little time to figure out technology? Or are you a technology guru who loves sharing tips with others? We cover different ways to make technology work for you without spending hours researching and learning how to do it on your own. You’ll be exposed to all sorts of technology you may have never known existed. But most importantly, think about what your interests are. Is it scrapbooking? Writing? Reading? Cooking? Pilates? Nearly every interest is now associated to either an Internet site (or many!), a software program, or at the very least an app. Explore your interest using technology and you’ll learn about both your interest and technology at the same time. Technology is an amazing element to learning, with pictures, videos, and links to other resources readily available. You will then be able to transfer your technology savviness from your hobbies to other projects you’re working on, say your kids’ reports, your business, or even helping with the PTA.
Tech Savvy Mama
Tech Savvy Mama assists parents in navigating the ever-changing world of technology. Leticia Barr uses her experience as a former teacher and technology specialist for a large DC Metro area school system to share new technology and educational resources. The best advice is to pick one thing to learn more about, know where you can seek assistance, and take your time with it . For example, if you want to learn more about social media, social media is such a broad topic encompassing Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Vine, and tools that aren’t even developed yet. Pick a social media tool that you gravitate towards. It’s ok to spend a little time lurking and watching what others are doing in the space as you learn before you dive in. The same advice applies to devices. To become more tech savvy about Windows 8, visit a Microsoft Store where the store staff can provide hands on demos. Apple users wanting to know tips and tricks about their iPad or MacBook can sign up to take unlimited classes for the very affordable $99 a year.
Traffic Generation Cafe

Tech-loving, geeky wife to one and mother of two (one at school and one toddler) writing about living life as a high-tech family. I love gadgets, gizmos and apps.
LittleTechGirl.com is a tech blog owned by Kris Cain. She is a busy mom to two sets of twins who posts about gadgets, social media, technology, online safety, and anything else tech related. I would say to jump in and do it. Also talk to your kids. They are learning things in school that just might help you. You can also check out blogs like some of the awesome ones here on this Tech Mom list where we take pride in sharing tips with other moms. My kids play with many different apps. They love games, books, and educational apps. I will say that I am very grateful fo the Kindle FreeTime app. It is an awesome parental control app for their Kindle Fires that make sure that only see what I want them to see.
Scraps of My Geek Life
Scraps of My Geek Life, a tech mom blog offering daily commentary, advice, reviews and shared experiences of how Michele McGraw’s real life and the digital domain connect. Michele shows families how to use technology . Start by finding technology that will make your life easier or more fun. If you are a runner, look into gadgets for running. If the technology makes your life easier, you are more apt to use it and your love for tech will grow from there. I always ask myself one question when looking at new gadgets, “Will this improve my life in some way?” If I can’t find one reason why it’ll improve my life, then I don’t need it. It’s not one gadget that I find innovative, but rather the way gadgets especially tablets and iPad are being used for kids. At my children’s elementary school, they have a student who doesn’t speak, but he uses his iPad to speak by typing in the words. My kids don’t see it as odd. It’s just the way it is. I love that!
Tech Tools 4 Mom
Bringing moms the hottest, coolest, and sometimes unheard of iOS app reviews. Helping moms use their iPhone and iPad to make their lives easier, more organized, and lots more fun. I’ve been contacted over the years about different technology products coming onto the market. I’m excited on what the future has in store, but the one thing that has caught my attention is how companies are starting to combine educational apps with real world tools. I love the iPad and iPhone, but bringing playtime outside of the ‘box’ again would be nice. Seeing how companies combine the two looks to be interesting. Read, read, read. Follow some of the Top 25 Tech Moms, each one offers their own twist on technology. It may be hard, but try to stay one step ahead of technology with your children. They start so young!
Review and recommend educational apps for kids, help busy parents stay updated on new technology for learning at home. Never stop learning new things, take small steps and don’t be afraid of asking other people help, including your children. Today’s technology changes so fast, when you think you get it, it is replaced by newer ones again. If you feel you can never catch up, you are not alone. I felt the same way all the time. However, we should not let that feeling stop us from learning new technology. Instead, use the anxiety as a driving force to learn more. A good place to start is iGameMom’s How-To Section. You can find iDevice tips, app how to’s, and tips on how to use apps to interact with your kids. In addition, most app reviews on iGameMom have detailed information on how to use the apps. Our goal is not just recommend good educational apps, but also help parents feel comfortable to use it with their kids, including those who never used apps.
I’m a mom of three who runs an iPhone/iPad app development company with my husband. I blog about business topics and other tech subjects related the evolving mobile space, which are helpful for my fellow developers and give a behind the scenes peek. My kids are used to tech in our family, since we’re iOS developers. My daughters love their Wacom tablets. They use these to draw on their computer graphic/art programs, rather than using the mouse. The tablet is a natural way to take drawing and make it digital. It’s great how kids these days just assume tech has always been in people’s lives. Don’t be afraid to trial and error. Today’s tech is less apt to cause you to lose everything. I remember a time when hitting the wrong key would delete everything. Nowadays tech is much more forgiving and just messing around helps you pick it up quickly.
The Nerd’s Wife
A blog about Life, Love and the Final Frontier. I’m a mom to a brand-new baby boy and I write about the exploits of my nerdy family, technology that I find interesting, photography and social media. Fun, right!? Jump in with both feet. I learn by doing, so when I get a new piece of technology, I just start playing with it. Test its limits. Read up on some of your favorite mom blogs to see what technology they’re using. I hardly ever buy new technology unless it’s recommended by someone I know in real life or online. Honestly, our most-used gadget for my toddler is our Apple TV. We buy his favorite movies and TV shows in iTunes, and watch them on the Apple TV. If we are going on a trip, we can download them straight from iCloud to our iPad or iPhones. We can watch the movies on our computers. We don’t have to worry about him scratching DVDs or keeping up with different ones. It’s so easy and makes my life so much simpler!
I am a mother of 3 who writes about kids online privacy. All of our kids are growing up with a digital me. My blog provides parents with tools, information, and resources to manage their kids online reputation. Jump in! Our kids are online and they need their mom online. The only way to understand a kids’ digital world is to visit it. That doesn’t mean moms need to be on everything a kid is on. You don’t visit every city when you travel to a new country. Pick one social network, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr, and start exploring. You will see how a network connects people and what people are sharing online. If you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask your kid to help you out. They are often the best tour guide. My oldest child, who is incredibly lucky, won an iPod Touch. This was her first gadget and she is still playing with it. She uses it for everything — listening to music, playing games, taking pictures, recording videos and chatting with friends. Other devices she has handed off to her younger sister or brother but this one she refuses to part with.
The Domestic Geek
A lifestyle blog about my life as a stay-at-home-mom…and of course video games! My biggest tip, especially as a gamer is that you absolutely need to check the ratings of video games (and yes 17+ means, they really should be only played by teens age 17 or older, it does not matter if their class mates are playing it). You need to be educated about the games your kid is playing. Do some research, watch some videos. You would be surprised from some of the content in video games. I feel like when you’re in a video game, playing as a character, you get more involved in the story. You feel the raw emotion of it and it can stick with you. Some video games do have censored settings, but that doesn’t mean your child won’t turn the swearing or gore back on when you leave the room.

Tales of a mom with a wardrobe in black, living an authentic life, while rambling about 2 headstrong girls, quitting her day job, and the gas-passing bulldog who sneaks into her bed at night. For any mother who wants to become more tech savvy, the best advice I can give is to jump right in! Don’t be afraid to pick up a new tech toy, gadget, or anything of the like. Technology is enhancing our experience in many areas of life. The majority of tech tools you use have tutorials associated with them. I take those myself. There is no way to keep up with all of the new technology available, and nobody is expected to. The goal should be to get to know the few you are actually interested in using or need to know how to use. You might be surprised at how easy it is and how much you like the new technology available!
Work at Home Resources
Gayla’s impressive, online career began in 1999. Gayla infiltrated several niches with authority – grew a blog into a community, then into a business, twice and sold both at a 6-figure profit! Gayla ♥’s all things tech! Don’t be afraid of technology. There’s almost always an “undo” button somewhere. The key tips I recommend are: (1) Don’t believe everything you see on the Internet. (2) Always mouse over links before clicking (3) Never give out personal information unless you’re sure it’s a secure site. (4) Google Everything! Place your search term inside quotations to uncover the most relevant results. (5) Research, research, research! The Internet is packed full of valuable information that can save time, money and more. But for all the valuable information that’s out there – there are a bazillion scammers waiting to cash in. If you’re uncertain – ask questions on Facebook and/or Twitter – someone will always have helpful input.
