First of all, how are you and your family doing in these COVID-19 times?

How does National Education Technologies innovate? 

Justin Payeur: We provide parents with tools to start conversations with their children on how they use tech, how much time they spend on tech, and keep them safe from filth content online. 

How the coronavirus pandemic affects your business, and how are you coping?

Justin Payeur: Since our team was already mostly remote, COVID didn’t impact our productivity. 

Did you have to make difficult choices, and what are the lessons learned?

Justin Payeur: In relation to COVID, we didn’t have to make any tough decisions. 

How do you deal with stress and anxiety? How do you project yourself and National Education Technologies in the future?

Justin Payeur: Personally, I ride my bicycle at least 200km weekly, which allows me to clear my mind and stay healthy. It has the benefit that it is outside, and minimal restrictions exist during COVID when outside. I have taken the approach to educate myself on trending topics that deal with online safety for kids and families. Our brand is to help families in finding good screen time habits in their children. 

Who are your competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the game?

Justin Payeur: Our competitors include Apple and Google plus other third-party vendors such as Qustodio, Kaspersky, Ourpact, and a few others. We’ve all had challenges with Apple and Google. We all banded together back in 2019 and created this website to bring awareness to our challenges: https://screentimeapi.com/ 

Your final thoughts?

Justin Payeur: In our category of apps and services, we feel COVID has opened our eyes that there is such a thing as good screen time. Limiting screen time to 1 or 2 hours a day never took into account the content kids were consuming. COVID has shown we must all spend more time in front of screens with online schooling and lessons being down on a computer or tablet. That’s good screen time.
