Preschoolers and Technology

Those that are too easy will be boring. “You want software that has a developmental progression, so it’s focused on what your child needs to learn next,” says Dave Hendry, curriculum coordinator for ABCmouse.com, an online curriculum company for preschoolers. New knowledge makes the most sense when it’s built on a foundation of previous learning.

When you’re shopping for educational technology, “Look for tools that allow your children to interactively control learning at their own pace,” says Hendry. 

Of course, even the best educational technology shouldn’t take the place of reading books, playing with peers, and making mud pies. Early childhood experts recommend tech sessions of only 30-60 minutes for preschoolers.
