Webinar Recap: How Kids are Envisioning the Future of Content & TechnologyBy Kim Gaskins August 10, 2011
Last week, Latitude presented a Webinar based on findings from its Children’s Future Requests for Computers & the Internet study. We explained how kids’ inventive outputs can be considered a window into what future content and technology experiences might (or should) look like, including near-term solutions for how to extend content and storytelling experiences across platforms and even into traditionally offline spaces.
You can check out a full recording of the presentation below:
“What seems to be happening with a lot of tech development is that … the most advanced companies are moving towards interfaces, interactivity and devices that are actually increasingly kid-like, and that access the most primary and natural ways that we as adults have of interfacing with the world. So the divide between kids and adults is sometimes a very arbitrary one, and I think we’re increasingly obliterating that divide. What the kids are imagining or desiring here is very indicative of what quite a few adults want, in maybe a slightly different way, but can be applied to adult work, adult interfaces, adult software, and adult content, in ways that are obviously specific to what adults need.” —Steve Mushkin
