At the turn of the century, the world caught a bug; technology. Technology gained momentum which it still is doing at a dizzying rate. At the present, it’s quite hard for a teenager to comprehend how life was before smart phones, Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter. It’s hard for me to imagine it myself. How did we socialize? How was information disseminated?
iPads, tablets, smartphones have become commonplace in the modern child’s life. It’s becoming more and more common for a toddler to learn how to doodle on a gadget than they would on a drawing book. They are learning at an even younger age to text and make phone calls. The school system has caught this and to prepare the youngsters for a world that is technology-led, they are making it part of their curriculum. This is a great move as it is the only sure way to give a child a head-start in this competitive and positively challenging world.
