Buttons

Why is it that kids are so quick to learn new technology?

I was having this same discussion with another teacher one day. 

Her answer was simple.

"Because they aren't afraid to push buttons."

Kids will try anything.  They aren't afraid of messing up or starting over.  They download a new app on their iPod and just start pushing away.  Curious, wondering what each part of the program is.  Sucking in all that knowledge.

I need to shift my thinking.  I need to stop being so scared of starting over, and become more curious. 

I need to push more buttons.
