What is the right age to for children to have a cell phone, computer, or an iPod? How old does your kid need to be before they should be allowed to have My Space and Facebook type social networking sites and Twitter?
These are the new questions of the digital age.
Super psychologist Jean Piaget’s theories of cognitive development have been applied to a recent New York Times article about supporting your child’s growth with technology. As a psychology major, teacher, and tech savvy mama, I found this article to be fascinating and had to share. The article provides excellent suggestions about developmentally appropriate technology for the 0-12 set while still emphasizing play for the youngest children and the real world applications of computers for college bound students.
Read the article here and feel free to comment with your thoughts! After all, nothings says weekend like a cup of coffee and the NYT, even if it is online!
