WHAT'S NEW & WHAT'S COOKING
Iconiq 10 went LIVE! at the Litbug Fest in Pune. It was a joy to see parents and children in action, tackling the Iconiq India game with us and learning something new in the process.
As kids explored the lengths and depths of India from languages to nature to food to sports, we learnt something too: that age is really no bar to using a question as a great prompt for discovery and discussion. We were floored by the responses that came in - enthusiastic raised arms and whoops of delight when they got something right. For some questions you could almost hear the brain machinery whirring as our host (and Iconiq India co-founder) Harish piled on clue after clue to gently encourage the children to find the answers.
The LIVE! quiz also showed that the spirit of exploration is alive - sometimes we just need a trigger (like Iconiq 10!) to energise it.
One of the questions at the quiz was:
While the guesses kept coming in, the answer had to be prodded for. Harish was able to masterfully demonstrate just the right amount of encouragement a curious grownup can provide: sticking around for the child who was trying to answer, prodding and questioning and connecting, till the "aha" moment happens and the answer reveals itself.
Some answers showed how the next generation is slowly replacing iconic stuff of the past with new icons of their own (guesses of Virat Kohli over Sachin Tendulkar), while some revealed the parental influence that still permeates in their life, through foggy guesses (a hesitant answer of 'Mera Baccha Hai Japani?' instead of 'Mera Joota Hai Japani', showing the perfect example of how memories cross over across generations!).
Kids took home some fab Iconiq India memorabilia for their efforts, along with heaps of chocolates of course. And we took away some useful ideas on how Iconiq 10 can be used in your home.
Next up: we will give you a lowdown on how you can use Iconiq 10 with the kids.
