The way children bond with their grandparents now is sure different than than how I related to mine. Back in the day, the most technical thing that I’d do with my either of my grandmothers is sit on the couch and watch a movie with them. Ayva, on the other hand, plays video games, reads e-books, and even makes movies with her Grandma Mary. Because of technology, her Mom-Mom Sheila, who lives across the country from us on the East Coast doesn’t have to be excluded because Ayva even knows how to video chat and send emails. My how things have changed! Grandmothers are going tech!
One of the best ways for young children to engage with their older family members through tech is with a tablet. Not as big as a computer, tablets are mobile (hello, spring break sleepovers at the grandparents!) and can be just as powerful as a larger machine. Take the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 for instance. Some of its awesome features include:
- a front 2 MP Front Camera
- 5 MP Rear Camera with Auto focus( 1080p Video Recording )
- 1 x Micro USB
- 1 × 2-in-1 Audio Jack (Headphone / Mic-in)
- 1 × Micro SD Card Reader,up to 64GB
- 9 hours of battery life (that can get us from Oakland to Los Angeles and we’d STILL have battery time left)
The biggest draw of a tablet for intergenerational tech engagement is the ease of use. You take it out of the box, charge it up and go. Everything is so intuitive that whatever you THINK you should do is probably right. That’s perfect for little ones who are just being introduced to new devices, and older generations who didn’t grow up in the digital age, but are quickly adjusting and eager to go digital!
