Computer and Internet Use for Young Children
Does it make sense to put a young child in front of a computer?
Is computer time taking away from time needed for other important learning in these never-to-be-repeated years?
Are parents being lulled into thinking their children are being helped by this technology when perhaps the parents and children are being lulled into passivity?
Chris can help you make the best decisions about computer use for your child. We are happily surprised that his advice is as relevant today as when we filmed him in 1999.
Back then whole sections of computer stores were full of education games and software. That's gone now, and instead of that parents are confronted with lots of education Apps from which to choose. So when Chris talks about software with bunnies and aliens, think of Apps with bunnies and aliens.
Chris is a graphic designer, web site designer, and computer programmer. He and his wife, Theresa, homeschooled their son for twelve years. They have traveled the USA giving seminars to parents, classroom teachers and homeschoolers on the subject of using computer technology in education. shopgreatproducts.com
