A while back we posted a report published by the
Alliance for Childhood questioning
computer use by young children For those interested 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. \"
