Healthy Screen Time

Fun Computer Learning at KGM

“If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn?”
Ignacio Estrada

Some children are primarily auditory learners, others are visual, and still others are kinesthetic. Why teach them all the same? Although it is sometimes challenging in a classroom setting to completely individualize your curriculum, it isn’t that difficult to include a wide variety of activities geared toward various learning styles. Although it does take some time and thought, when educators change their curriculum to best meet the needs and learning styles of the child, more learning usually occurs and the motivation to continue that learning is much stronger.

Computers and digital media are a fact of life in teaching and learning. Research shows that children even under the age of 3 are being exposed to various forms of digital media. For children ages 6 and up screen time is expanding from the television to computer monitors to hand held devices such as IPODS and IPADS and media players, etc.

Kids Great Minds want to introduce a new and innovative screen time. This is learning by doing and playing all simultaneously in a healthy environment for fun computer learning. Positive exposure to visual arts and digital media has been proven to develop physical and intellectual skills that transfer to everyday life.
