img_e0124.jpgOur child now is surrounded with technology, they get immersed in the Internet, communication gets faster. Their consciousness to look for information is prominent for them rather than actually knowing for something. On a positive side, we may use it to strengthen their higher order thinking skill such as critical thinking, problem-solving etc. I believe, teaching nowadays is more challenging because our child is better than us in using technology. Children tend to imitate whatever they see. This reminds me of the Bobo Doll experiment by Albert Bandura. So as a teacher what more we can do for the best of our learners. Do you think that as technology progress, the learning regress?
