Jennifer Wagner


Jennifer Wagner has been involved with technology since the early 1990s when she ran a computer school for children. She has been a technology enthusiast ever since and her two sons have become tech wizards.


After running a computer school for young children for seven years, at a time when personal computers were not yet in schools or many homes yet, Jennifer sold the business and got an M.L.S. degree. She then became an academic law librarian where she spent most of her time teaching online legal research to law students.

She left after four years due to a move and began writing her blog, Connect with your Teens through Pop Culture and Technology, where she helps parents keep up-to-date with these areas to help stay relevant and better bond with their tweens and teens. Jennifer also recently began another blog, Technology at Any Age and wrote a book showing the other side of gaming, The Gamer Generation: Reaping the Benefits of Video Games


Jennifer Wagner has both a B.S. and J.D. from New York University and an M.L.S from Southern Connecticut State University.

A Word From Jennifer Wagner

Technology is the future of our world. While we should limit our kids improper use of it, we should not limit their constructive uses of technology any more than we would limit their reading books.
