And although nothing can compete with a real teacher organizing an engaging, fostering and motivational learning environment for their students, and finding a personal approach to each of them, the advances of today’s technology can also be a great supplement to the traditional educational process.

Technology has infiltrated almost every layer of our lives, and our kids are reaping the benefits of access to the newest technology, including instant connection to various types of knowledge, differentiation of instruction, and social learning platforms. While many can agree screen type devices offer positive learning opportunities, parents are left to navigate how much screen time is appropriate for growing children from the ages of 2-10. Risk of lack of physical activity, developing language delays, symptoms of ADHD and sleep disruption can arise if screen time boundaries are not established.
