Parenting, Educating and Learning In Today's World of Modern Technology

It has been almost 7 years since I left my job in the IT world to be a stay-at-home-mum. With our 3 kiddos growing up fast, how can parents like me adapt and try to keep up with the ever changing world of modern technology? How do we make use of modern technologies to parent our children and at the same educate and learn as we journey into the world of parenthood?

As parents, I absolutely believe there is no way we can avoid and shun our lives from technology and modern devices. It intertwined with almost every aspect of our lives and I feel that the best way is to embrace these technologies but still keep them to a moderate level and being there with our kiddos as we grow along together.

So in what ways do I use modern technology in educating our kiddos?

I think it is a fun and interactive method to educate our kiddos using tablets provided we get the age-appropriate type of applications to work with such as apps that teach young children on phonics, alphabets, puzzle games and more.

I am also picky and inclined towards reviewing apps that are beneficial and useful to our family. I sat together with our kiddos as we go through the apps, explaining to them how to play the apps and being there with them as well. It was amazing to see our little ones with the twinkle in their eyes as they discover and learn new things, such a precious magical sight! It's like making magic together with them, everyday!

Other than that, I also use our tablet to read news to our kiddos before their bedtime as it is so convenient to just turned it on quickly, browsed for interesting articles and read to them and once done, turned it off and time for bed! Anyway, I believe that knowledge is key and never harm anyone if we read up more and know more. And since I am reading out loud to our kiddos, I hope they can learn to listen the proper pronunciation apart from learning about things around them.

I also use my computer to gather resources such as worksheets and printables for our kiddos to practice on. I search tons and tons of websites online when I need to find more info along with YouTube videos to show to our kiddos how things work and looks like. For this, I'm very grateful to own a reliable Windows computer with the fast processing power of Intel processors.

Since I rely heavily on tablet and computer in my parenting life, it is awesome to be able to make use of Acer Switch, which is a 2-in-1 device to help me along as I educate and parent our kiddos on top of keeping myself updated with the technology today.
