Parents, Students And The Digital World
Parents should encourage children to use technology to reinforce what they learn in the real world.
(NAPSI)—When it comes to navigating the digital world, many parents admit that their children are a step or two ahead of them. Today’s world is not the same as it was just yesterday. Embracing this, Sylvan Learning introduced SylvanSync™, a digital instructional system that uses the best of technology to provide students with an engaging, personal learning experience.
The experts at Sylvan are offering the following tips to help students use technology wisely.
Safety First: As soon as a child first begins to use online resources, make sure to create a safe Web environment. Carefully monitor and control usage and employ protective tools such as safe search engines with parental controls.
Match Up: Make sure your child’s use of technology matches with what he or she is learning in school. Look for programs that engage several senses—visual, auditory and hand-eye dexterity.
Reinforce: Children should be encouraged to use technology to reinforce what they see and learn in the real world, and use real-world experiences to reinforce what they learn using technology.
