  • WHILE MOST OF WHAT THE RESEARCHERS SAY IS TRUE, ITS ALSO TRUE THAT THE COMPUTER IS ESSENTIAL IN DAILY USE TODAY, IN SCHOOL OR AT HOME....FOR RESEARCH, BACKGROUND, ETC, ....AND AS PARENTS AND ADULTS, WE HAVE TO TAKE THE TROUBLE TO SUPERVISE AND COORDINATE HOW THE CHILDREN GO ABOUT USING THE COMPUTER.....THE PRESENT GENERATION, AT LEAST MOST OF THEM, ARE NOT INTERESTED IN BOOKS, OR SUCH THINGS WHICH OCCUPIED OUR FREE TIME WHILLE WE WERE GROWING UP....THE TRENDS HAVE CHANGED....WE CAN'T JUST TURN OFF THE COMPUTER AND FORCE THE CHILD TO START READING BOOKS.....THE INTEREST HAS TO COME FROM WITHIN....AND ALSO, M LOT OF SCHOOL WORK---SCHOOL PROJECTS, HOMEWORK, ETC, HAS TO BE DONE WITH THE AID OF THE COMPUTER....GRANTED, THERE ARE OTHER ALTERNATIVES, BUT STILL THE MAIN SOURCE OF INFO IS THE COMPUTER.....

  • I think the question is put somewhat wrong,.the computer not foolishly children, but how he is used by them It is harmful to stay for hours to computer especially if there are not surveillance of parents Only use the programs for children, for educational it is very important Equally important is restricting the programs for adults that children are attracted

  • I had an interesting conversatin with some colleagues whoare parents of young children. I always ask students what something is - like the game Angry Birds - and get them to explain it to me. In my class I have to say computers have given us more depth and flexibility. These parents have children with mobile phones who access games and we were talking about how you need to monitor what they are doing by getting them to show you or explain. It's the consumption of technology without adult intervention which is the problem . As book readers we couldn't consume so much so quickly !

  • George, informative presentation. I also believe technology is muting the senses of children. When people read books there is a time delay that allows for analysis, comprehension, and imagination. In contrast a computer is so fast that it may bypass those crucial mental phases.
