It is the 21st century now where the kids of today are in touch with a plethora of multimedia, different tech gadgets and also social networking platforms. You won’t be surprised if you have seen a Primary School kid fiddling with an iPhone or maybe playing games on Facebook!
So, have you ever thought of how these “gadgets” or multimedia can be of any constructive use to your kids learning?
To put things in perspective, you can actually think of how all these multimedia can serve an objective in aiding your child’s learning. Education + entertainment = Edutainment. This equation serves a reminder that a well-balanced mix between the two components does achieve a wholesome effect. It’s all about having fun while learning right!
Games with educational content and learning with multimedia platforms have been proven to better allow kids or students to explore topics that they are interested in greater depth. It not only empowers them with the impetus to find out about something they are really passionate about, but also put the fun in learning new things first before all the hard facts.
