Helping Your Child Learn through Technology
Parents get this worrisome feeling about their children spending more time playing on screen devices, since they have this notion that these devices could stunt the most important development areas of their children’s social and communication skills. On the other hand, while physical activity, reading and other traditional activities continue to play an important contribution to the children’s development, some parents take a positive outlook of the technology’s usefulness in other learning areas, just as long as the children’s time is balanced with a variety of activities.
While toddlers are beginning to form many ideas in their young minds, the problem is that they have yet to develop their cognitive and motor skills to communicate; but with the introduction of technology devices, which have evolved to be more intuitive and creative, such that the video-calling on a tablet or smart phone has opened up a world of possibilities for toddlers to start their social interaction and communication skills. By using this technology device on a positive note, you are allowing both yourself and your toddler learn how to use the device to an advantage, such as taking turns to converse with one another, and in the course of the conversation, you try to explain some aspects that your toddler needs to fully understand, then you have succeeded in providing a shared learning experience to your toddler, giving him/her the opportunity to express his/her ideas.
To allow the right kind of learning to accomplish to your children using the interactive tablet, give your guided interaction with them and provide an exchange of communications, such as asking questions, making suggestions, providing encouragement, praising achievement, and building up confidence, so that all these support to your children’s active play and learning. You can also introduce your children into an emulated life experience, through an uploaded virtual game in the tablet, sort of an exploratory game to allow you to know what your children’s responses will be and, by guided interaction, you can teach them valuable lessons that can be learned from their responses.
Finding Ways To Keep Up With Computers
It is your responsibility, as a parent, to choose the appropriate app in your children’s tablet, an app that contains learning activities that are enjoyable, develop curiosity, and open-ended games that are progressively challenging and encouraging. In choosing the right app, it would be better to spend a little on the right apps, rather than using a free app, only to find out later as you and your children progress in your level of engagement in a game or learning activity, the providers will already demand payment if you have to go further.
