Should Young Children Use Computers?

A while back we posted a report published by the
Alliance for Childhood questioning
computer use by young children For those interested in
or in
need of support regarding appropriate computer use
by young children,
David Thornburg has a response on PBS.org.

\"What I DO have a problem with is the assertion
that computer use in school is designed to take the
place of these other activities. I have never visited a
school where children were not engaged in physical
play, art, and adult contact, even when these schools
are loaded to the gills with high-tech! Properly used,
technology just becomes another powerful tool for
learning. But the assertion of these authors is that we
have abandoned human contact for virtual worlds. \"
