The Positive Effects of Technology on Kids Children by Leigh Goessl | Inside Technology 360 | The Impact of Technology on the Developing Child | Scoop.it
Children today are engrossed in technology. Everywhere they turn technology is a prominent part of their lives. For kids today, envisioning a life without technical gadgets and toys is probably
Oshrat Grinberg's insight:

Technology's positive effects on children are vast and long reaching.

Parents who allow their children to maximize and absorb the benefits of technology and effectively minimize exposure to the drawbacks, will teach their kids the value which can be derived from technology.

While there is perhaps some validity to the argument that technology 'dumbs people down', this should not occur unless we allow it to. As long as technology isn't used as a constant replacement for problems solving, it can enhance and encourage thinking.

Oshrat Grinberg's insight:

Technology should be used at times of learning, and not every-time the child wants, because it influence hardly on the child's behavior and expectations. For example, when you give your child an ipad on a restaurant he will always assume that in restaurants he should have an ipad next to him because he thinks it's time to play. Parents should encourage their children to impair with them and connect with their peers, because children learn best from experience and observation.

Is Technology Creating a Family Divide?

Is Technology Creating a Family Divide? | The Impact of Technology on the Developing Child | Scoop.it
Technology and families don't always play nice together.
Oshrat Grinberg's insight:

Technology is creating a family divide. 

Not only that the children spend a lot of time watching TV or texting, their parents do the same thing as well. Sometimes parents and their children text each other more than they really talk face to face and spend time together, causing less connection—the real kind - and that means that families aren’t able to build relationships as strong as they could be nor are they able to maintain them as well.
