Yesterday, my granddaughter Eileen attended her pre-four class via Zoom, a virtual meeting software platform. Zoom enables participants to see each others’ faces on the screen while attending meetings, seminars, classes, and for some these days – parties. I marvel how young children seem to innately grasp complex technology, and I am amazed by their advanced learning at such young ages.
Eileen listed the names of all of her classmates that she saw in “the squares.” I asked her what she learned about.
I thought she said Brexit.
I was aghast , or as my mom would say “floored.”
Then Eileen started talking about cereal.
