From Snapchat games, TikTok pop-stars and coding robots to VR Super Mario, AR Harry Potter and AI storytellers, this session will give you a primer on the most innovative, interesting and (sometimes) controversial new children’s tech trends, products and content in 2019. What’s the new Fortnite? Are kids all ears for podcasts? Who are children’s new idols on YouTube and Twitch? How big is the younger audience for esports? Will virtual-avatar singers make children say ‘thank u, next’ to Ariana Grande? Journalist Stuart Dredge has picked some of the top kids/tech trends that fascinate (and occasionally terrify) him.
