Transcript of How Can We Use Technology To Provide Positive Cognitive Deve

Importance Of The Use Of Technology For Positive Cognitive Development
Better understanding of technology. This means that children will be further advanced before college in subject matter adults have to take class for.
Raising children with a positive use of technology will allow them to aid you the parent and others with future technology that we wont be able to comprehend.
Aids children in learning when parent is either unavailable or incompetent.
For children from low-income families where vocabularies are smaller, with technology, books can read for children when the parents do not take the time to or have no time to and help increase vocabulary that they would not been exposed to otherwise.

Continued Importance Of The Use Of Technology For Positive Cognitive Development
Computer experience promotes greater gains in verbal and nonverbal skills, problem solving, and abstraction and conceptual skills as compared with children without computer experience.
Play is important for intellectual development. Used appropriately, computers can introduce positive elements of children’s play and learning as they explore and experiment. Technology that is connected to what children already know and can build upon leads to greater motivation and self-direction.
Prolonged attention which leads to increased learning.

Types of exposure such as internet access from a cell phone or anything graphic or not child appropriate.
Length of exposure, which could lead to addictive like behavior as well as missed play times with toys and parental involvement.
Antisocial, if child is only focused on technology and does not interact with others.
Loss of creativity can be a problem if children uses drill and practice software. This type of software introduces isolated skills and directs children to practice them and memorize them, removing the curriculum in which students learn and use skills in an integrated way.
Technology is not educational and does not help contribute towards positive cognitive development.

Should I wait to get my baby the I phone 7?
Technology is cool!
What Can Be Done!
Open-ended software that provides opportunities to discover, make choices and find out the impact of decisions would foster creativity.
Set up schedules or routines, or enforce limited time for technology usage.
Purchase toys and games that will engage the child in learning and entertaining, as well as outdoor toys to encourage time outside.
Set up play dates where children can experience technology together safely.
Set up passwords and block inappropriate material from devices.
Reduce amount of technology you use as they are learning from you, or take time with your child when you are around.
If you engage in technology, allow the child to join and explain what you are doing even if its boring tax law or accounting on excel.
Additional Things You Can do!
Invest in educational tools and toys, for example “Leap Frog”, it has educational games and learning software; an “Ipad” can get educational games too however Ipad's are not education specific where the child can access non positive cognitive developmental programs.
Make Technology a privilege not an entitlement.
