Grandparents’ Day Sunday September 10 Has Tech Implications

This Sunday, September 10 is Grandparents’ Day!!

The role of grand-parenting has certainly changed in our history. Take a look at the statistics:

Did You Know:

Number of grandparents in the U.S.    70,000,000
Percent of U.S. households lead by grandparents    37 %
Percent of Grandparents that are the primary caregiver to their grandchildren    13 %
Percent of people who became a grandparent in their 50’s    43%
Percent of people who became a grandparent in their 40’s    37%

Also, perceptions of porches and rockers as the primary activity of grandparents are inaccurate. Consider these latest data findings:

Percent of grandparents who use the internet 75 %
Percent of grandparents who use search engines to find information 70 %
Percent of grandparents who shop online 63 %
Percent of grandparents who use Instant message 30 %
Percent of grandparents who share photos online 56 %

Math Conversations Go Global

Would you get up at 2:00am to discuss math concepts? Students in Kenya did tonight! They slept at their school in order to participate in an online, global Fuze meet-up w/ high school math students from two schools in California. This project is under the supervision of Dr. Eric Hamilton of Pepperdine University.

All students’ insightful, engaging conversations and discussions of their STEM projects were illuminating for me. “Illuminating” is a word of hyperbole but it fits tonight after listening to these insightful students. Boundaries can be shattered from just these types of conversations!
