2012 is shaping up to be the year of Mobile devices with over 6.8 Million iOS and Android devices activated and over 242 Million Apps downloaded on Christmas day 2011 alone. (source: Flurry Blog) No doubt many of the devices activated ended up in the hands of kids, either as a gift or as a result of the "pass-back" effect. Pass-back occurs when adults pass their mobile devices to their kids either intentionally for "play" or unintentionally to act as a baby-sitter while Mom or Dad are engaged elsewhere. With over 50,000 education apps listed in the Apple App store alone, it is not surprising that mobile phones and tablets are ended up in the hands of kids. What is surprising is the age at which kids are using the devices often with little or no help from an adult. Check out this You Tube video of a 2 year old using his fathers iPhone. The explosion of Mobile Devices taken together with the pass-back effect means that more and more kids will have access to sophisticated internet enabled devices at younger and younger ages, years before they ever step foot inside a formal education environment. The impact of this is potentially profound, revolutionary and definitely disruptive.
