Arianna Bejarano's insight:

In this article its talks about how to encourage a love of reading at such a early age. Well one of the suggestions was to read out loud to the child. By doing this, the child thinks that the parents who is reading the book out loud also loves reading so that encourage the child to love reading too. The other suggestion was gives books as gifts instead of toys.

When I was reading this article about iPads make better readers and writer I didn't really believe at first but when i kept reading it seem like its true. According to a English teacher in Euclide OH jumped right board about using iPads and his students have better test scores. So in this age students are using iPads for reading and writing.

I wanted to look up an article that could help me become a better reader and become more efficient when I'm reading especially when it came to textbooks. First strike of this article was it started off with "Once a upon a time...", really? Am I reading a children's story or am I wanting to read a very thought-out, educational article? The article seemed somewhat okay with what the author was saying and how the Professor did a survey on how students test better when they are I-pad users which is debatable, but the second strike that honestly made me stop wanting to read this article was that in some Kindergarten classrooms they put about 5 I-pads for children to share and they use them as reinforcement tools for what the children just learned in class, because as a kindergarten teacher it's hard to control a classroom so they distract them with electronics. All I got to say is my children are screwed. Yes using I-pads or computers are very useful, but for a 5 year old? There is just no way that result will turn into a good idea.

It's an article with a co-designer of Barbie and it pretty much says that they won't change the proportions of Barbie because then she wont fit in her clothes.

It happens a million times a day in schools: a teacher starts a lesson. The strong students seize on the new learning opportunity. Typical students figure out enough of what they have to do to succeed. But students who struggle in school may flare up, or shut down, at this critical juncture. These challenging students often react before they give themselves a chance.
