Think back to your earliest childhood memories; how did you spend your time? Unlike today’s kids, your memories likely don’t include playing for hours on your parent’s smartphones. By contrast, modern children are considered digital “natives”, meaning that from the moment of birth they live in an environment where the use of mobile devices and the Internet is the norm.
This new normality poses new questions and challenges to parents and teachers. The former may be wondering how to make the most of their kids’ screen time to ensure that they have the best balance of online and offscreen activities. While for the latter it’s natural to be wary of incorporating screen devices into the classroom, especially with the already limited time within a school day.
Luckily, high-quality digital learning tools can help both parents and teachers make the best out of their kids’ and students’ time with screens. Thanks to highly engaging elements, such as interactive apps, games, and videos, online content enhances the learning process by making it playful and fun. Whether at home or in the classroom, screen time offers a dynamic and engaging educational experience that prepares kids for navigating today’s technology-driven world.
