Devices and Other Tools

Much emphasis has been put on STEM education of late, otherwise known as a combination of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The biggest obstacle to these subjects is the fact that not all adults understand them, and even fewer can describe how to use electronic devices to effectively teach them. Computational thinking is a great example of this. Teachers have placed a decent amount of value on teaching children how to “code.”

I have been thinking how can students use screens productively if they provide no educational value?

Electronic books were invented decades ago but were recently perfected within the last 10-15 years. How many educational institutions are taking advantage of this technology? If students were looking at a screen with quality reading material on it, would that be preferable to random videos and distractions? How might carrying hundreds of books around all day change the life of the average student?

Screens are becoming an increasingly important aspect of education. Given how much smartphones and tablets are being used throughout the world daily, it’s only fitting that they become integral parts of the classroom. It is then up to us and parents to ensure that what is being displayed on those screens is beneficial for the growth and development of our tamariki using them.
