I went to a Kids Tech workshop at IFTF on Friday. It was amazing to have such a great resource of people who knew a lot more about all this stuff than I do. I have several pages of notes from the day and I haven’t been sure how to synthesize it into something sharable yet. But I will try and put something together..
I think it definitely influences some of my ideas. I had initially been thinking about the space between work + play as an area to explore but after the workshop I’m sort of reconsidering a little.. It sounds fun to make work more like play, but is it bad to make play more like work? Something about KidZania just doesn’t seem quite right. I also had initially considered a wider, general audience, but I wonder if it would make sense to focus mainly on a younger demographic?
