And here is Cassie and Ryan’s TEDxToronto talk.   And again, the best lines from the talk:

because they are facing a future that is filled with knowledge work, our goal should be to help kids become creators, not just consumers.

The aim is to program or be programmed.  But we are not teaching programming.

We call them digital natives. Folks, these devices have a touch control interface and one button. if we are amazed our kids can use these devices, we are not expecting enough of our kids. 

The future demands mastery not just participation. 
We should be teaching kids to be creators, not consumers
Watch as THIS talk becomes a classic TED Talk.
