Kids Innovation Study

The Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning blog recently featured an interesting posting about a Kids Innovation Study that was conducted by ReadWriteweb and Latitude Research. The study asked the kids, “What would be really interesting or fun to do on your computer or the internet that your computer can’t do right now?” Interestingly, only 4% of the kids responses were impossible demands for today’s developers. The study found that kids desire “increasingly immersive content experiences, better integration of digital technology into physical objects, spaces and activities, and more intuitive interfaces.”

To see drawings of the children’s responses and for more information, visit the Latitude Research website.
