Technology enhances READING!

January 29, 2013

ImagePersonally, I would rather read a physical book and they still excite me. However, now that we live in this technological age, technology excites children. Recent studies show that new technologies like Kindle Readers have helped children who are less excited about reading. Children enjoy the fact that the book can be read to them and they can follow along. They can also make the print size bigger or take notes on the book while they are reading it. These features on the Kindle Reader help the children express their own thoughts while reading or make it more interesting to them.  Read more here about how technology is helping children read.

At Kindermusik, we are also using technology. Our new digital home materials in our kids music classes, have a downloadable book. While we also provide a paper copy, which is sometimes still easier and we should never stop using, the digital world is here and we need to teach children to learn from it, respect it, and use it for benefits in the real world.
