Kids Will Be More Tech-Savvy Than Their Parents by the Time They Are 10 Years Old
CHICAGO, Oct. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- VTech®, a world leader in children's electronic learning products, conducted a OnePoll survey of 2,000 parents with children aged 3-12 years old to discover the opportunities presented by technology, and the reasons why parents think it's important for their child to be proficient.
The survey found that 85 percent of parents are impressed by how quickly their child picks up new technology, which may be beneficial right now, as many school districts have moved to a distance-learning model for the 2020-21 school year. Survey results revealed:
"When kids are introduced to technology at an early age, they become more comfortable and familiar with it, making it easier for them to adapt," said Andy Keimach, President, VTech Electronics North America. "Technology is an integral part of distance-learning, and with so many children learning from home this school year, it is more important than ever for kids to be fluent in technology."
The survey also revealed the value parents find in technology, not only with education, but with regards to creativity and influencing who their child will become. Additional results showed:
Perfect for any kid creator, the KidiZoom Creator Cam comes with everything kids need to create awesome videos, including a green screen, tabletop tripod that converts into a selfie stick, 20+ animated backgrounds and easy on-camera video editing. Whether getting chased by a T-Rex, going to outer space or making themselves disappear, the KidiZoom Creator Cam lets kids be the star while encouraging self-expression and creativity. They can also create trick shots and time-lapse videos with the editing and creativity tools. The camera is kid-friendly and does not have a built-in Wi-Fi connection, so video can only be uploaded via the included USB cable at a parent's discretion. The camera has a microSD card slot to increase storage to 32GB (card sold separately), and a rechargeable battery.
