Issue #85 What is Digital IQ?
What is digital intelligence and why is it especially important for children? We found a company that is focused on creating better digital citizens. We’re hoping more learning platforms follow suit. Next Wednesday, we publish the findings of our long awaited The What Lab Report #1. You’ll finally see the results on everything we have tried and tested in “The Lab” category over the past 18 months.

The Term — Last weekend The Telegraph UK published an article on ageless women and mentioned GP and Perennials. Thrilled that Perennials has crossed the pond again. #soperennial
The Digital — While many parents are obsessed with teaching their kids how to code, Harvard PhD in Biostatics has developed an online learning platform called DQ World to teach children how to become responsible digital citizens. Through games, missions, and quizzes children will learn about digital identity, screen time management, cyberbullying, cybersecurity, digital empathy, digital footprint, critical thinking, and privacy management.
The Cable — Looking for something to binge watch on your next long flight or lazy weekend. Check out our reader recommendations in our private tWW Forum. We’ll be publishing on our open Fb page tomorrow.
The Reading — Tarot cards have a rich history dating back to the 15th Century. They were used as playing cards then became a form of divination linked to the occult. On a lark, we’ve tried readings over the years and take everything with a giant grain of salt but a friend swears by this online Tarot Reader. Try it for fun.
The Lab — Mark your calendars for next Wednesday when The What publishes our Lab Report #1, the lowdown on everything we’ve tried and tested since November 2015.
