Big news: Cricket Media is sponsoring a sweepstakes contest! Enter now for the chance to win an iPhone 7! You’ll also be entered to win the grand prize of an iPad and a free subscription to magazine of your choice just for sharing about the contest!

 

Now, wait just a minute, you might be thinking. Aren’t these the same people who are always writing about Keeping Tech in Check? Why would Cricket Media give away technology? Well, technology and screen time are part of our world, and we’re not trying to change that. What we do advocate is using tech responsibly—creating a balance, not a ban. Whether kids can use smartphones after school but not in the car or at the dinner table, or if every finished homework assignment earns fifteen minutes of tablet time, every family should be free to come up with the plan that works best for them. You can learn more about our Keeping Tech in Check initiative here!

 

While we’re on the subject of technology, did you know that people have been suspicious about new forms of communication for HUNDREDS of years? It didn’t start with Snapchat! When the telegraph was all the rage, experts worried that it was “destroying the language” by encouraging abbreviations and improper grammar! Does that sound familiar? Even Socrates believed that those newfangled inventions called “books” were making young people less intelligent—why bother learning anything if you could just look it up in a book, right?

 

Here’s a glimpse of “Texting Through the Ages” from MUSE magazine. MUSE is all about the cutting edge of science, delving into the weird, wild, and wacky world of STEM, just right for curious kids from ages 9-14.

    I too much thanked those who wrote down about keeping tech in check in particular the communication technology in smartpnones technology. And so I realized broadcasting emission on may 22th 2017 of which the theme is ” English teaching in the lower classrooms”.
    I obviously gave a good part of the kids communication technology.
    Then least how can we to make iphone or ipad useful for our children ?
    Overall parents think the smartphone to be worry technology for children.
    And so we can make them useful of five manner:
    1/ We can team up our children to write the stories down, poems, tales in order to send to anothers around the world;
    2/ Making two hours working plan for children.
    3/ Making an English learning programme including puzzles( games);
    4/ Using the smartphone camera to create own picture of children in view to set up their own world for instance in the unlpug case to share around the world to contact other kids;
    5/ Parents have to observe what their children look up on the screen:
    Once finished this hard working it’s important the childen to relax through the recreative activity.
    Parents can take them to visit the Zoo animals or get fit in a restaurant so on…….
    As regards the telegraph it only sets in the company offices and so the post offices.The access of this communication tool is very difficult for children like parents during this period.
    Nevertheless the characteristics of above communication tool are what you demonstrated in your content.Brief they are not similar than smartphones of which our children have access as while as telegraph not.
    In fact what Socrates beleived that books were making young people less intelligent if those ones learning anything is right. I retained an Socrates’ idea who was saying; ” don’t live in the book” .
    Therefore we must do a part of something when we are reading a book.
