Reasons Why Technology Enhances Learning

    • Our children grew up using technology (vs adults who adopted & adapted to technology). Most children experience joy and become more attentive/engaged when using technology.
    • Technology provides instant feedback and individual attention.
    • Technology provides an individual learning companion which is engaging (animation & games) & motivating (allows multiple tries to overcome challenges to get higher scores/level up/power up/secret objects)
    • Allow your child to learn with technology but set up control & monitoring measures to keep her on-task, safe & focussed!
