Etienne Mineur, Play & The Invention of Appmates

Really interesting interview with inventor, Etienne Mineur who talks about the importance of playing and seeing the world from the point of view of a child.

"Mix high technology & low technology" - Etienne Mineur

Mineur invented technology that allows real life toys to connect & talk to the iPad. Disney recently released an ipad game/toy  hybrid using this technology called APPMATES.

Hello There & Welcome! My name is Cynthia Jabar.

I'm a Picture Book Author, Illustrator, Occasional Editor & Ebook Tinkerer published by Candlewick Press, FSG, Harper Collins, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt & other fancy pants publishers. I'm wicked lucky, I know. I also create & license characters & surface designs for games, sticker activity books, craft kits, temporary tattoos & other fun stuff.

But my favorite thing to do is create storytelling experiences with & for kids. I'm a self proclaimed Web Literacy Mentor that refuses to give up. My mission is to help empower kids to discover their voices, tell their own stories & become creators of content and not just consumers as they change the world for good. All while eating COOKIES! These are my notes.
