Smartphones and tablets hinder learning when used in educational settings for children younger than 9 years old.


What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree? Disagree? Why? Why not? Remember, this isn't talking about personal devices, it's talking about devices that are used in the classroom.

I disagree, if they use the electronics in a way that it teaches them, it would be fine. Some kids might be able to learn better with electronics because they cant pay attention to somebody talking.

I disagree, technology has been proven to stimulate the learning part of our brains, we adapt to the machine as well as it adapts to us.

I agree, kids might try to be sneaky and play games on the device instead of what they are supposed to be doing. whistle

I disagree. They're some educational apps and games that actually get the kids attention by teaching them various skills and at the same time being actually entertaining. Instead of having to just sit down and listen to an adult, they can engage in various fun activities through the usage of electronics.

I disagre, kids could use it to learn so many things. It's just the type of discipline their parents give them on how long they can stay on it. But i think it is a learning experience for them.

I disagree, because there some educational websites and apps that could help younger kids learn things in a fun ways for example abc mouse.com. And little kids usually more paid attention and focus more when having electronics with them.

I would disagree, using electronics in a healthy and educational manner would not hinder their learning capabilities, but it would do the opposite, it would improve their learning capabilities by a significant amount.

While I do agree that technology can be beneficial to learning, it is also a distraction and is often times used for the wrong purposes. It also makes it easier to cheat on classwork because there is so much information available on the internet.

I mostly agree with this statement, yes educational tablets have been proven to help and improve learning across the board. But there is still a risk that the kids might be doing something that's not allowed, and some kids might learn differently then others, so the tablets might be more of a problem for those students.

I disagree, i think its easier to learn with electronics than it is just sitting in class. It gets boring just sitting there and just listening to some one ramble when i rather learn from a computer or hands on.

i disagree, in a educational environment it can help the kid by letting him expand his knowledge faster, and letting him see and learn overall new things.

Electronics don't hinder a childs learning. If it's on educational settings then the child will be using electronincs like computers and tablets in a way that helps them learn.

In most cases I would agree but in modern society this seems like a more faster and efficient way to learn things especially if children get distracted very easily this could be a way to keep there attention so I disagree with technology causing distractions to younger learners.

I believe that using technology can be good and bad. Some children may learn better in different settings like the tablet or smartphone, but there will often be times that they will not be allowed to use technology and they would not know what to do.

I disagree kids should be able to be on electronics because it helps them on their education. But some parents can limit on the time their kids can be on the tablet.

I disagree,a kid at nine years old. Has such a short attention span to books and people talking. Even us as older kids we have computers,Although, everything may be blocked but once we got over that using google classroom and other educational outlets seems like a fun alternative.

I agree, kids below the age of 9 should be taught in ways other than technology. Such as hands on activities or field trips.

I disagree, technology when used in educational places can catch a child's attention, causing them to learn far more. This'll also assist them in the future, where with the modernization of jobs, new technology also inserts itself into everyday life.

I agree, because kids under the age of 9 they would see things that they shouldn't see.

I agree, smartphones and tablets can be a distraction if used in the wrong way. Don't get me wrong tablets and smartphones are a good way to learn but I don't believe they are a good alternative. It makes kids rely too much on their phones and instead of asking people questions they will ask their phones for the answers. They may gain the habit of looking it up answers on the phone without trying to think about it. There is also something about reading an actual book. reading a book on a tablet can strain and damage your eyes after a while.

I disagree, if used wisely the web has many educational sources that your child learns day by day in class. It's not all distraction, while having the power of what your child does. You can always offer your kids a treat like going on the web after learning a subject or studying.

I disagree, in order to keep a child entertained and to learn at the same time is a difficult situation. So in this case an electronic device will provide the child the fun and excitement to keep on learning. There's a lot of great advanced programs are fun and made for children that enjoy games and learning.
