What’s the best way to connect with your kids using a slate?

I’ve partnered with SAY Media and Microsoft on this campaign and in the hopes of opening a dialog around the concept of kids and computers (and more specific to me toddlers and slates/tablets) to allow brands to connect with audiences around their passions in environments where they’re spending time and opinions are being shaped. What’s the best way to connect with your kids using a slate? I felt the answer is simply based on the game play… while I feel that watching a video is pretty passive interactive game play will teach them a little knowledge how to get into the next level and hopefully their way around technology environment – what would you answer this question as?  http://new.conversations.typepad.com/co014e8641a931970d/what-is-the-best-way-to-connect-with-your-kids-using-a-slate.

  1. If it’s for movies, you may as well watch TV.

    What about any of the many puzzle games (you know the ones – slide the pieces around to get a ball out) as a sort of parent-child problem solving session.

    Failing that, there’s always 2P air hocky…

  2. As age appropriate, here are some tasks to do with your child with the use of a hand carry tablet :
    1. Select a book, download it and read it.
    2. Lookup movies at local theatres, select one, buy tickets and go see it (as an adder, use voice directions to get you there).
    3. Child’s first walk alone to friend’s house, to the store, etc. using the tablet to provide voice directions.
    4. Plan a day trip and take the tablet with you on your trip.
    5. And at the end of a long day,watch a video or play a game with your child.

  3. I love to play fun learning apps with my little guys! It’s a great way to connect, learn, and play at the same time!
