I can't tell you how excited I am for my son to be growing up in this age. There is so much possitive potential, but we as parents have to recognize the importance of technical literacy. It's more than iPhone games; it's the language of the future.
Just a quick mention about this terrific company.
GoldieBlox is putting out a line of great toys aimed at encouraging girls to play with toys geared around engineering, science and math. Many toys on the market for boys showcase males in important roles in the STEM field and so boys are encouraged to imagine themselves in those roles, but too many toys for girls are locked in a world of fantasy, superficial, and traditionally weaker social positions. GoldieBlox is changing all that.
