Running Head: TECHNOLOGY AND CHILDREN Technology and Children TECHNOLOGY AND CHILDREN ● Technology and interactive media are the most recent additions in the education system. ○ The use of technology for teaching children presents challenges due to its detrimental effects, such as the concerns about the safety of the technological devices used when teaching children. ○ The impact of technology and interactive media use on the development of children is also under scrutiny (Moreno & Mayer, 2007). Thesis Statement: The use of interactive media for childhood learning presents challenges that threaten the proper development and learning in children, through over-exposure to unchecked technologies and the underlying detrimental effects these technologies present. ● Nonetheless, technology and interactive media are unavoidable, and the only viable option is to develop means by which to nullify the detrimental effects and at the same time benefit from the integration of these tools into the education system (Bryant & Hunton, 2000). ○ One way of avoiding the detrimental effects is through the close monitoring of children's activities to ensure that they are within the acceptable and healthy bounds. ○ Guiding and overseeing the children ensures that their technology-related activities are in no way a source of harm for their well-being. ○ Second, using the appropriate technology for the suitable age is important to see to it that children are not overwhelmed by the interactive media to which they are exposed (Moreno & Mayer, 2007). ● The exposure of children to technology does not always stem from its application in the learning process, but at other environments, such as home, as well. TECHNOLOGY AND CHILDREN ○ Parents can also facilitate the appropriate use of technology in the household by ensuring that children are not exposed to harmful technology, however passive. ○ Parents can limit this exposure by avoiding background television and other visual media not suitable for the children. ○ Parents should monitor how their children use the appropriate technology and interactive media since overexposure could be detrimental, despite the suitability of the technology (Bryant & Hunton, 2000). ● The appropriate use of technology meant for learning should ensure that the negative influences of typical technology use are prevented, such as by promoting social development among the users, such as through extensive social circles. ○ Interactive media should also be developed in a manner that it prompts physical activity from the children, by engaging them actively (Moreno & Mayer, 2007). ○ The appropriate use of this technology ought to update the classroom and revitalize learning in the school environment, such as by eliminating passive learning. ● The use of controls to guide the application of technology and interactive media is important to ensure their appropriateness. ○ The selected media should adhere to the established guidelines pertaining to technology and media made for young children (Bryant & Hunton, 2000). ○ It is important that these technologies are verified for age appropriateness and suitability in the learning environment. ○ The results obtained from studies on this subject can also be incorporated in determining the appropriateness of the technology for use by young learners.
