Most young adults and older professionals today rely heavily on technology. In an increasingly digital world, there is almost no way to escape tech in its many forms and applications—and rightly so, as it is incredibly useful and can help us improve our capabilities and achieve greater things. That’s one of the reasons why there are many tech tools every student should have to help them learn at home and in the classroom.
Still, despite the digital age we are living in, some adults question how much exposure to tech kids should have before they reach a certain age. Understandably, parents don’t want their children to become reliant on technology or become so obsessed with it that they don’t have other non-tech experiences.
But technology can be an incredibly useful educational tool for students of all ages, even young elementary-level learners. The key to using edtech appropriately is to do so under supervision.
