answer children’s questions outside of school. The Cbeebies website is mainly aimed at children under 6 years of age. It offers games, songs, colouring, story time, watch, and radio
The website integrates well known children’s programmes such as ‘Tinga Tinga Tales’ with games, in order to stimulate learning in the most effective way. As well as games, the Cbeebies site provides videos in order to help children learn. BITESIZE The BBC Bitesize site is aimed at children from KS1 up to GCSE level.

Thank you for listening. Face to face interaction is no longer needed for discussing homework or meeting up to complete group work.
Children are able to stay in their homes and use different internet sources to discuss and exchange ideas for example social networks and email accounts. Time displacement hypothesis –
Children spending large amounts of time using media substitutes children book reading, taking part in physical activities and interacting face to face with others around them.
(Subrahmanyam 2009) There are benefits of children spending time in virtual worlds, such as chances to read and understand text, problem solving and learning about technology.
However informal language styles used can become a habit and be used when writing in the classroom effecting children's spelling.
