Why should children be supplied with modern technology at nurseries?

  • technology helps kids to learn faster
  • parents are able to follow results and progress of their children
  • children are prepared for the right exposure with media in their future life
  • the usage of touch pads promotes the cognitive abilities in kids early years of life
  • team spirit is cultivated, due to community games with other children

Why nurseries shouldn't be supplied with the latest technology?

  • Supplying every day-care-center with the needed technology is very expensive
  • interpersonal skills as conflict prevention and mediation stay unattended
  • to much media causes an addiction
  • the capability of forming own ideas to overcome tediousness is not trained
  • creativity is limited since programs simulate the content shown
