Technology; Is it a threat for the parents now a days?
Due to some inappropriate websites, it can be.
Now children are using the internet and technology not only at the home also in the schools, classrooms, and labs. For some parents, it’s too scary that their child will use the internet today in the classroom. A lot of questions come in their mind.
But luckily the teachers will keep an eye on the kids. The kids will use the technology in the school but they will not be allowed to use that inappropriate way. They will only get the access to the limited websites and links.
Here we will discuss almost three or four five concerns or tips which will help to become more and more comfortable that your child is using safe technology in the classrooms.
Talk about Safety:
Keep this thing in your mind that teacher has already discussed with the students in the classroom before going to the labor using the technology that while using technology be safe and secure. Don’t ever try to use the websites or links which are not allowed by the parents or teachers. But still it does not mean that being a parent your duty has finished. Take out some time from your busy life to have chat or discussion with your kids. Discuss with your kids that what is the proper use of internet both in the classrooms and at home.
Also, put some limits on your child’s use of technology by encouraging them to seek out some non-technology options outside the classrooms such as reading books, doing artwork, puzzles, playing cricket and others.
Use it to Connect with Teachers:
There is also one benefit while using technology in the classroom that it gives an opportunity to the kids and students an opportunity to become more involved with their teachers. Kids and students will use the technology in a way as their teachers are using. That can create a positive environment in their life while being online.
Try the Tools Yourself:
Another opportunity is there for the parents to make them more comfortable, try to use the technology your child is using in the classroom. Take a simple conversation with the teacher of your kid to get the access to the given software or at least search online that software and go through that.
Do Frequent Check-Ins:
Most of the applications and platform that are using in the classrooms are allowed the parents to check and get access at any time that what their child is doing and where they are spending the time. Take the advantage to avail this best opportunity.
In short the technology using by your child in the classroom is not necessarily a bad thing but still it does not mean that your responsibility is finish or your involvement is not required. Talk with the teacher of your child off and on to get the latest updates.
