Sure. It’s important that kids be able to read before they learn to use tech. Having ability to read will enable them to use tech easily because usually, the instructions to use tech are in written forms. It means parents don’t have to teach them how to use gadgets as they can learn it by themselves. Besides, they can also learn which game is good for them and which one is not.
Maybe tech helps them learn to read.
Children can learn a multitude of skills from technological devices that can aid them in school. There are countless ABC and number games, sign language apps, hand eye coordination games and other activities that children need. These days children are required to know these things in kindergarten when years ago they learned them in school. A colorful, interactive medium helps engage children and maintain their focus. By no means should they miss out on imaginative play and exercise activities, but when added to the mix technology can be a powerful tool.
