Mimi Ito, a cultural anthropologist at the University of California, Irvine who studies
how young people use technology, says it’s not necessarily because the teachers or
the people making edtech tools have bad intentions. She argues that understanding
another person’s situation is tough if you don’t share that experience. EdSurge recently
sat down with Ito at the Intentional Play Summit to get her thoughts on equity in
edtech, creativity and how kids’ relationship to technology has changed over the years.
