The children and young adults of today learn best by playing, often with digital gadgets, according to experts at the Sandbox Summit.
Apps and mobile devices are reshaping toys and education for kids, steering children's media towards a blend of entertainment and education. New technology has enabled children to start learning very early through interactive media and games.
Devices with intuitive multi-touch interface such as those on smartphones and tablets are part of the change to playtime, because they need less precision and are quicker to learn how to use than a computer mouse, experts say.
