Yes, my 2 daughters have shared with me
- Dude Perfect. There are 5 guys who were friends at Texas (and a Panda) that have a cool and fun YouTube channel. They started with basketball tricks and earned “endorsements” from their videos. Now they do comedy like sterotypes and more sports tricks. Now they have added games, books, and more. What I learned: My daughters love the quirky video fun and can’t wait for the next episodes. Their use of social is amazing and they have taken their passion and used it as a great example of the power of social and passion!
- Augmented reality (AR) art. My daughters recently showed me 2 postcards with art on them that came alive with a small AR app on my phone. Simply put — wow! The art came alive with flames that were painted and then on the phone it was real! What I learned: The world is changing to such a visual experience. My daughters expect an experience — whether it is AR or IoT sensors embedded to create an experience. A good lesson to learn and experiment with!
- They want our help. My daughters showed me today this note that a mom wrote to her son’s facebook friends. They wanted to chat on it but it was interesting that they “liked” reluctantly what the mom had done. What I learned: Kids do like help on social. My daughters AHA moment was her telling me that the accountability I have with her on Instagram helps her maintain “her” standards.
