Thoughts on the End Goal of Tech & New Media with Kids

Did you see this commercial for GoldieBlox on during the Super Bowl?

Our friends at Oceanhouse Media wanted to make sure we had seen it, because they loved it so much they put together a whole blog post about how the work we’re all collectively doing is important because it’s supporting the next generation of coders and technology folks–including girls, who still don’t have an equal seat at the table.

Watch the video, read the blog post, and think about how the work that you are doing in the library is serving children–early literacy age and beyond–to know about, have interest in, and develop skills for the world that we live in now. Doing that well is a pretty important end goal for any of us involved in technology and new media with children.
