This summer has been dominated by the iPad.
We don\’t have alot of friends yet so it\’s usually just me and Quinn. We\’ve been on a couple of adventures and we get out of the house every day but we both spend alot of time on screens.
But lately Quinn has found TED Ed. If you\’re not familiar with TED…
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
Quinn\’s favorite TED Ed videos that he watches over and over….
So yes, he plays alot of Minecraft and Terraria and other crap on his iPad. But he can also tell you the size of the Pacific Garbage Patch, what products contain nurdles and damage ocean life, why MRSA is so resistant, and much more that I will ever know about tattoos.
It\’s an iPad summer.
