Thursday 5th July 2012, 2:10pm - 3:10pm BST

Showroom Cinema 1

How Tablets are opening up new opportunities for children’s creativity, motivation to learn, and social skills.

Dr Barbie Clarke and her team have spent the last year observing children using Tablets in school and at home. The results shared in this session are inspiring and demonstrate a new child-led world of education, entertainment and communication. The intuitive way children use touch screen technology is demonstrated. Observations are made from a psychological perspective of what this means for children’s lives, and the future of education, entertainment and communication.
