Parenting column: 1951 article's advice about anxiety still sensible - News Sentinel

Parenting column: 1951 article's advice about anxiety still sensible News Sentinel Parenting column: 1951 article's advice about anxiety still sensible. Wednesday, March 26, 2014 - 12:01 am.

Manuela Maiguashca's insight:

This article is a reminder that children need to learn about the risks and dangers in the real world. Enacting these fears out in games can be a healthy way to address tension and process this reality. Perhaps our challenge as parents is to figure out if online games offer the same possibilities. When children play "good guys, bad guys" they choose when to stop and how to be good and bad. But in online games those templates are already filled in - that's the bigger issue for me.

Raising Digital Natives: Technology And Our Kids

Raising Digital Natives: Technology And Our Kids | Raising Digital Natives | Scoop.it
An NPR series explores what it's like to raise a generation of kids immersed in the digital world.
Manuela Maiguashca's insight:

Just because a child can turn an ipad on does not make him/her technologically adept. If you put a marker in front of a child, he/she would quickly figure out how to make marks. The challenge is teaching kids to understand the technology they use - be it an iPad or a marker.

Clifford Nass on Tweenage Girls and Multitasking

Tweenage girls who spend endless hours watching videos and media multitasking with digital devices tend to be less successful with social and emotional devel...
Manuela Maiguashca's insight:

The late Standford Professor, Clifford Nass challenges conventional wisdom about the benefits of technology and young people - in his pioneering research he was shocked to find that chronic multi-taskers were actually very bad at multi-tasking and those who multi-tasked less frequently were better at it. What can we ,as parents and educators learn from this? We can embrace technology but can we also fight to create spaces of face-to-face connection and non-screen interaction? Can we encourage young people too stop multi-tasking? How?

The Differences Between Digital Natives And Digital Immigrants - Edudemic | Raising Digital Natives | Scoop.it
Basically, all of our young digital natives are being taught by "digital immigrants", or, folks who didn't grow up with the internet.
Manuela Maiguashca's insight:

I'm a digital immigrant who works with many young digital natives. I'm struck by how many youngsters pretend to know more about technology then they do. There is a tacit rule: Don't ask. Figure it out by yourself.

Manuela Maiguashca's insight:

When a teacher tells me that "Kids today just get technology" I get worried. My own children, as well as the ones I teach figure technology out as they go along. And they make a lot of mistakes along the way. We have to challenge the myth that kids just "get" it.
