Digital media a regular part of life for many children. According to a national study by Common Sense Media, digital media has become “a regular part of the media diet” of children ages zero to 8 years old.
Infants and toddlers are spending twice as much time with screen media as they are with books, a report says. This is surely going to have an effect on education very soon. Books in the classroom will disappear. And that’s a good thing in my book :)
This columnist suggests that the 21st Century model for schooling should not involve a summer vacation, particularly if we want our students to be able to compete with other nations. He says the need for summer vacations has passed, “The reason for summer vacations in the first place was that little Johnny was needed in the fields to help the family during growing season.
