Technology Through A Childs Eyes-Raw & Uncut
Over the last 18 months or so my two small children having been gravitating more and more towards technology. If they see an iPad or an iPhone sitting around they will simply pick it up and start using it. On the particular day that this video footage was taken, my daughter, age 8, had taken a picture of some art and sent it to her grandmother. I asked her why she would rather text than call her grandmother and she replied that it was easier. I decided to re-ask the question while filming so that I might share it with everyone else. From a sociological standpoint it seems that mobile technology tends to make people more antisocial. In just 10 years my oldest daughter will be going off to college. Will she prefer to text me rather than calling?
