Introduction In today’s digital age, everyone is surrounded by technology and young children are no exception. According to this study by Dr Nirmala Karuppiah, 95% of the children started playing with electronic devices before they turned three (Teng 2013). Digital devices are increasingly integrated into their daily lives. As children continue to become more immersed in media, many adults have begun to wonder about the positive and negative effects of such exposure to the high amount of electronic media to the young children. On one hand, there is an argument that technology is preparing children for the future workforce (Daggett 2010).
Technology has become ever present in different aspects of our lives, but most increasingly in our education system and for the student in these schools. This can be seen by the increased amount of technology that each student posses – from smart phones, to iPods, and iPads. As well as the increased amount of technology in the classrooms themselves – from smart-boards to computer labs and online classes. While some of this increased technology can have disadvantages like cyber bulling, sexting, and plagiarism, the advantages technology has in the education system greatly out ways these. Evolving technology in schools helps disabled kids attend school with minimal aid, helps prepare students for using technology in the real world, and helps
In this article and video clip we are introduced to children who are used to using technology. Many of the children he refers to are addicted to iPads etc. In many ways technology is a positive matter and children use iPads to learn more math and to be a better reader. “My granddaughter, who just turned a year old, loves math apps and paint Sparkles as well as trying to following the swimming fish on

However, the involvement and the type of nursery supplier differentiates within each ethnicity group. 99 of children attending nursery where of white parents and 88 percent of children of ethnic minority. Playgroups and pre-schools were more likely to be used by children of white parents, and children of back parents went to nursery. Parental participation during nursery helps motivate the child with learning, but within the ethnic minority groups that depends on the employment. 15 percent of the black parents are involved since the beginning of the child’s education compared to the 5 percent of Asian parents.
This resource is a brilliant way to encourage positive behaviours within the classroom. It is a very creative and well-designed technique for teachers to award students for positive behaviour with gold stars. It also allows teachers to share attendance, behaviour and homework rewards with parents. Classroom Heroes can also be used during
In my opinion, it is a wonderful program because the children have the opportunity to learn both languages at the same time at the early age. With this program the students could develop cognitively in both languages, and they learn about culture and history of their ethnic group. One example of the dual language is the students who speak Spanish or speak-English are placed in the same classroom, and they learn and work academically each other in both languages. I hopefully in the future the Dual Language will implement in more schools because this is a great program and the students will obtain a wonderful opportunity to learn more than one language in the United
How is technology changing the way we interact with people around us? Some say technology is resulting in people hiding behind their screens, while others believe it is making relationships stronger.

Social and emotional development plays a big part in school success and is supported as they play and interact with other children and adults (Jaruszewicz, 2013, sec. 1.3). Each of the interest areas will be clearly defined, has the necessary materials displayed, and because the room is so spacious as the teacher I will able to view the different areas simultaneously. “The aim of these resources is to give teachers ways to integrate the "what, why, and how" consistently across the curriculum” (Jaruszewicz, 2013, sec. 2.3).
These strategies make learning more interactive. Children often enjoy technology, so using it while in school may make it more fun for them to
