It is good that in modern time,
there has been a new kind of teacher has been evolved to help kids and even the
adults learn about quite a lot of things. There are online academies, courses,
degree programs, paid and free mobile apps, and newsletters to keep us ahead in
the learning curve. Without a doubt, they keep us updated. However, can they
replace teachers? Of course not. Many of us fail to understand that technology
is nothing but a tool that allows today’s popular to learn in a smarter,
deeper, and visually better way. But they can not replace a teacher. Otherwise,
the world’s biggest universities had zero attendance. Even Bill Gates once said
that when it comes to learning, no one can diminish or ignore the importance of
From the start of 2005, a flood of
technological innovation stampedes the market with such high intensity that we
could not keep up. Being for kids or adults, every information in the utmost
detail is now available on their fingertips. All they have to do is type a few
words on their Google search bar and the pages will unfold in front of them the
answers of tough questions they have always wanted to understand. Some
companies are even taking the same to the next level by introducing and mixing
up future techs such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality in the
same. Coping up with technology, many English Medium
schools in Jaipur have
upgraded their way of teaching in the last few years as well. Online guest
faculty sessions, whiteboards, and online test series have pretty much had
become a standard.
We can undoubtedly say that the
generation of today spends a very high amount of time in front of the screen.
Whether it is about social media, computer or online games, chatting with
friends, scrolling through YouTube, finding a new TV series on Netflix or
focusing on a tutorial to learn something new, their overall screen time has
been significantly increased from the kids than that of seven to eight ago.
Cyberspace of today is more crowded from the kid’s population than the real
world actually is. It goes without saying that the revolution in the world of
the internet has affected almost each and every sector. Whether positive or
negative, every sector has been affected.
Today is it no surprise that your
kid may know your smartphone more thoroughly than you do. After all, they are
twenty-first-century children. They see individuals, political discussions,
education impartations all happening around them very smoothly with the help of
the internet. You would be surprised to see that every classroom today has a
WhatsApp group where they share thoughts, plans, and assignments. One recent
study on smartphones shows that almost 55% of students are actively
participating in the online world and 80% of them stay active on at least one
social media platform all the time.
The internet is putting a serious
impact on our little ones’ brains. How? Because they use it for almost
everything and in turn, they are becoming less and less competent in solving
mathematics calculations, remembering facts and figures, and fit due to lack of
wish to move from one spot to another. Twenty years back, it always felt good
to hang out with friends, share experience and talk. But today, online chatrooms
and food delivery apps made them unwilling to move from one place to another.
Today’s kids would rather order a pizza and eat it in solitude instead of
calling a few of their friends to enjoy it on the streets. This lazy lifestyle
is hindering the physical and psychological growth of our kids.
As responsible parents, it becomes
our duty to regulate the time our children spend in front of screens each day.
It can be done by establishing a friendly conversation with your little one
instead of snatching the phone away from his hands. You need to gather up the
facts and the right way to convey this to your kid and tell him smoothly than
how bad it is for their mental and physical health. Now, you also need to
facilitate the departure of that screened device by introducing another fun
activity for example - letting them join a sports club or a music class.
