Welcome to our November 2015 issue preview.

There’s much more news than there is time for in this issue of CTR. Some headlines:

Apple TV 4 is in Stores
We knew Apple TV 4th Generation ($150-up) was coming, but we didn’t realize how child friendly it was. Case in point, the quantity and quality of children’s apps in the new Apple TV App Store (accessible only from within Apple TV).  These include apps that blur the line between “app” and “video.”  Read our notes in the November issue.  Please login or visit the subscription form.

Digital Dutch Treats
Last week I attended the kid and family friendly Cinekid festival Amsterdam. Part of the event is called Medialab (no connection to MIT) — a digital playground for children to showcase projects from around the world. Read more in the November issue.

Use Minecraft to Learn Linear/Non-Linear Interaction Tricks
We captured the first chapter of Minecraft Story Mode in order to better understand some of the techniques used by Telltale Games to engage children with the narrative. Have a look at https://youtu.be/J6yfkrl8dAg
