Education

We know more than ever about the way kids learn, and we have more tools than ever to teach them. Technology is a spoonful of sugar for a child’s early learning. Below is a place to share what is happening in education technology. Best of all, you can collaborate with and share insights with experts, other parents and professionals all interested in how children develop and learn.

Feel free to ask questions, add answers and make comments on education technology and get notifications from the inside track on innovations that are changing the future of children’s education and opening doors towards more meaningful, efficient and effective communication with our little ones in those all-important formative years.

Technology and key developmental milestones

Technology stimulates a child’s cognitive ability in key areas like mathematics, language, logical thinking, art, creative development, personal and physical development and reasoning. It can simplify complex concepts and illuminate topics that can otherwise bore a child. Development of new apps and educational products might help a child succeed at school and gain physical, emotional, social and motor skills more quickly as they grow.

Controversial changes in how to think

Many an adult will remember being taught with chalk, textbooks and blackboards as a child, but these days we also have educational technologies like educational games, interactive white boards, interactive games, educational websites and films, technology in school and other forms of education technology to help us teach children and what a world of a difference this makes for parents, children and teachers alike. Are there any drawbacks?

There is some concern that educational technology might be another iteration of placing your child in front of a television set. Perhaps it might actually harm a child’s intellectual development by making certain kinds of learning too easy which then reduces the appeal of formal educational formats? Could some educational technology reduce your child’s interest in reading, writing and creativity thanks to consumption-driven and passive technological devices? It’s the spoonful of sugar that makes the medicine go down, but perhaps education technology might lead to outsourcing thought processes and turn lead to dependence for basic problem solving.

Children, technology and the future of learning

It is amazing how much information children can soak up in the early years and now, when we know so much more about how kids learn and kids’ education, we are better equipped than ever to teach, entertain and engage our little ones from the word go!

How can technology help children learn and develop? Of course every child is different, but we now know that most children learn best when all their senses are stimulated, so technology in the form of educational games, educational websites, technology in school, education technology can make all the difference for a child’s early education.

Supporting and helping children

Every child is unique and technology can help parents and professionals target certain areas where a child’s understanding may be lacking. It can be used to address problem areas in a child’s development and to effectively support and communicate with children of different abilities and levels of understanding.
