Technology is EVERYWHERE from laptop, smartphone to tablet. Nowadays you see more children playing on smartphones and tablets more than playing toys.
But how about when it comes to learning?
In this digital age today it is even more challenging to get children to read more books and to learn out of their school times and so this is why it is important to incorporate learning with technology to provide even more interesting ways to encourage children to learn in a fun, engaging and enjoyable way. Technology is therefore not a bad thing at all. It actually provides children with MANY possibilities for them to get learning, explore the wider world around them and to read more too.
