2 Year old on the Iphone

I often begin my presentations with a YouTube clip of Leo, who is a screen addict at 3 years old. It shows him at two and a half mastering the mouse in response to a motivating game on screen, Leaps and Bounds.

From here on in I am going to show Paige demonstrating the Iphone to the world on Teachertube, which is just an incredible short. I think the clip shows both the ease of the Iphone, surely a model for all gadgets to follow. It also goes against the VTech plasticy toy approach we often take with IT and kids, why should kids in Key Stage 1 and Foundation be restricted to the bulk and difficult to use when it was meant to be simple experience of the Digi-Blue camera, when they could probably use the Flip.

Lets see what the Redbridge Film Competition brings us from our youngest techies

Oh and here is the video:
