When I arrived at the penthouse I was greeted and given a name tag. I was then shown into the room where the event was to be held and I was personally greeted by the guest speaker Suzanne Kantra from Techlicious.com, Marcy Massura, And Amanda Young from Sandbox Strategies. I am a big fan of Techlicious and was excited to see that Suzanne had been flown out from New York to speak with us about gaming and our kids. What she shared was really informative.If you are not already receiving emails from Techlicious you need to get over there and sign up. You can also follow them at @techlicious on twitter. Some of the things she shared I thought were pretty amazing. Here are some things I bet you didn't know about gaming and your kids. Kids who game are more creative, learn to set harder and harder goals for them selves, and games improve your child's ability to reason in new situations. Kids who game with their parents have stronger family ties and have stronger mental health. Also gamers have faster reaction times than non gamers.
All in all it was a great Summit and I was really happy to have learned so much. I guess I can't complain about the Tech Monkey and Airborne playing video games with Agent Daddy any more. They are certinly creative and good problem solvers which I can now attribute to video games instead of good genes.
In the world of FAD and FAB, I give these really cute games a FAB! If you have little girls you definately need to get these for Christmas.
