When I was younger, there wasn’t Google, Yahoo or ask jeeves to search your research we used books.
Everything now a days you can find out from searching the Internet, whether that’s from your phone, tablet, laptop or computer. Everything is at the touch of a button.
Even some schools relay on Internet for children to search for information if they are doing a project.
This got me thinking about when Bear and Bell start to research for projects or wanting to find out more about something they have learnt at school. Will I allow them to just jump on the Ipad and search what they want to know, or will I encourage them to find a book and read from there what they need to know…
As you may know if you follow my twitter and Instagram I love books, and I mean LOVE books, I really wish I had a bigger place so I could start my own library, with a comfy chair and some lovely cushions… I can dream.. anyway what was I saying…
So you may of gathered by now I would 100% encourage them to read books to find out the information they need.
Why will limit the amount of time let them use the tablets?
Technology devises give of small amounts of radiation, which isn’t good for anybody!
It encourages poor posture and strains the eyes.
It over excites the brain! Which then would make the children not be able to fall asleep easily.
You can get so many different books to find out information, you can get books from places you visit, books for helping learn maths, about your body, flap books, feely books the list goes on and on.
And reading a book is so much more beneficial then sitting on a tablet/Ipad, as you can’t guarantee the correct spellings or punctuation on the website! Maybe I am such a book worm that I really hope that one day Bell and Bear will love reading as much as I do.
