Children and technology: a powerful infographic from

I recently received an e-mail from Hannah Edwards who is part of a team of designers and researchers who have put together a fascinating new infographic about the impact of technology on young children. The original can be found on the site.

There is plenty to discuss in the infographic but the most telling and interesting sentence (in my opinion)  was this: “Today 70% of children between the ages of 2-5 can operate a computer mouse, but only 11% of them can tie their own shoes.”

See what you think about the infographic that I have been able to use on my post because of its Creative Commons License.

I would be interested to see what any of you think about the infographic.
