It’s hard to find a household without internet nowadays, and having our kids online is part of everyday life. Kids learn to use computers, tablets and smart phones at a very early age. It’s not all just about fun and games; smart technology can be used for learning too. To prove it, check out these 10 things your kids can learn online.
There is a lot of debate about the pros and cons of allowing young kids online, and screen time in general. We live in the internet age, so kids will get their hands on a smart device sooner rather than later; trust me. These days, it is pretty much a given that they will like it and the games available too.
There are an abundance of games for kids to play, even for those younger than two to play. While some of them might look silly at the first glance; many of these games have their educational values, and will help your kids develop useful skills. It’s sneaky learning, but they will love playing, and are developing skills at the same time.
You might think that apps mainly focus on simple learning such as maths, reading or writing, but there’s so much more to them. For example, there are quite a few apps and games that will help develop your child’s creativity; we are pretty sure you have already heard of Minecraft. There are also an abundance of games that help your little ones master skills like playing an instrument, or even help them to do magic tricks, but all in a fun and playful manner.
This wonderful infographic will help guide you to the apps that really work to help kids online do something useful with their time, and not just play mind-numbing, and un-helpful games – though every once in a while, they are OK too ;-)
Lots of learning and skill developing to be had. Have you tried any of these apps with your kids yet? Did they like them? I am sure these 10 things your kids can learn online have opened up a new perspective on apps and games.
