Episode 23: Granola Bars VS The Internet Generation

This week we invited veteran educator Tess Wigginton to come on the show and discuss a viral advertisement for Nature Valley Granola Bars that has spurred a conversation around whether or not our kids are forgetting how to play and experience nature the way we and our parents generation did.

Check out the Video here

What do you think? Are kids these days doomed to be slaves to their devices? Or is the nature of play evolving to prepare kids for the future? We discuss all angles of this topic and take a look at how past generations have had this discussion about emerging technologies everytime something new appears to disrupt the attention of children.
