CS Table 10/24/17: Interactive and Connected Toys

Interactive Toys have long been heralded as an introduction to technology. Although toys such as Hello Barbie and Feisty Pets have been heralded as the new frontier and games such as Minecraft are often viewed as educational, these toys and games present a few drawbacks. At this week's CS Table, we will discuss these toys and the pros and cons of this exposure.

There are two readings:

Computer science table (CS Table) is a weekly meeting of Grinnell College community members (students, faculty, staff, etc.) interested in discussing topics related to computing and computer science. CS Table meets Tuesdays from 12:00–1:00pm in JRC 224A (inside the Marketplace). Contact the CS faculty for the weekly reading. Students on meal plans, faculty, and staff are expected to cover the cost of their meals. Visitors to the College and students not on meal plans can charge their meals to the department (sign in at the JRC front desk).
