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, you get the kids attention more with electronics than just making them sit there and listen to you talk about something some of them could careless about

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.
