Tech + Values

Some of the most helpful conversations about technology and well-being actually don’t begin with tech at all. Instead, they start with who we are, what we value, and what we are experiencing in our lives. Start exploring how technologies support or undercut what you most cherish.

Our Tech + Values Sort app invites reflection about the values that are most important to you right now. It is designed to be done individually on your computer or phone, and optionally shared or discussed in pairs. We also have a paper-based option.

The Values Voting activity, which can be used after the Values Sort or as a standalone activity, is an engaging way to spark group discussions about how our values connect to tech.

These activities are also integrated into a free classroom lesson plan (suited for middle or high school settings) that we co-created with our partners at Common Sense Education.
