- Adults can be excellent facilitators of children’s learning by interacting with children using technology and also overseeing the way technology is used. Technology can enrich educational experiences and strengthen children’s relationships with both peers and adults when used intentionally and selectively.
- While technology is a wonderful resource when used appropriately, it is not intended to be a substitute for adultchild interaction nor should technology replace meaningful interaction with children’s peers.
- Parents, caregivers, and teachers have the important role of choosing what is best for children and what, if any, technology is appropriate. Considerations may include the age, nature, and inclinations of the children and the way that digital media can be used to enhance learning opportunities and meaningful interactions. No solution fits every child, family, or classroom.
