While colleges, universities and high schools have embraced the use of technology in classrooms—there has been some reluctance to use it at home.
Given that we aren’t entirely sure of the impact of technology on young children, the reluctance is understandable. However, the use of technology at home has many advantages if it is done in a balanced environment.
These are just some of the advantages of using technology for educational purposes:
We all know that children have rather short attention spans, and easily lose concentration when reading, writing, or anything else that has to do with learning. Using technology to teach your children will keep them engaged with learning, and they are more likely to enjoy the process.
Immediate gratification is a huge driving force in today’s society, and this is even more true for children. With technology and educational games, they can see the immediate results of their work, rather than waiting for teachers to mark their stuff.
Gamification encourages children to learn rules, remember sequences, and how to navigate hazards. This is great for their cognitive development and will help them learn better in the long run.
The fact of the matter is that technology is driving our world, and will do so more and more in the future. Getting your children used to technology is the best way to prepare them for the future.
We are firm believers that striking a balance between real time play and learning, is the best way for young children to get an all-round education. That’s why we developed our Play Miniland model of learning. It a new model that “promotes a combined approach to real and digital play. Miniland Educational real toys are supported by innovative digital resources, so as to provide a fun-filled learning experience.
It gives your children the opportunity to get the most balanced learning experience, through a combination of real time, traditional play—combined with the digital tools that will provide extra excitement and encourage more engagement.
It is an excellent way to get your kids to hone their motor skills, work on their cognitive stimulation, and learn their school work—all while having fun.
At Miniland Educational, we design toys that stimulate and engage children in the process of learning, and this has proven to be an effective and efficient way to get your child up to school readiness levels.
