“Stay Curious” Maddie Moate is my son’s hero, and he got to meet her! In this episode, we ask Maddie about her career path into “edu-tainment”, what life as an “edu-tuber” is like, and what she thinks the present, and future, of creative learning will be. No pressure, then.
Maddie came into our world via an iPad in the bath. In the ever raging debate over “How much screen time is too much screen time for children?” our four year old son Milo is obsessed with the CBBC series “Do You Know?”, hosted by Maddie. For us quality of content trumps legnth of screen time, and Do You Know? is quality that our son can watch as long as he likes.
So you can imagine Milo’s delight when Maddie said she would meet up for a chat, and he could tag along.
