We appreciate that Duck Duck Moose decided to show how parents can collaborate and co-use their software with children in their promotion videos. Rather than an isolated child and device. Duck Duck Moose did not ask us to promote their tools, rather we found this example and were drawn to the example of co-use. Many times promotion videos focus on children working alone with software, when in reality, research has told us that children need collaboration and co-use to help them better comprehend what they are learning, make their thinking visible and understand how to effectively navigate software.
