2.  http://www.montessorisociety.org.uk/ :Do Young Children Need Computers?

http://www.montessorisociety.org.uk/article/do-young-children-need-computers

Apps for children:

My favorite “Applications for children” are children reading, writing, and using their hands to explore nature in the real world. I am not a huge proponent of much computer or screen time for children, especially before the age of 10.

However, if your child is going to spend time staring at a screen on a tablet or phone device, these are some helpful alternatives to games:

Dragon Box Algebra

Brain Pop Jr.

Study constellations with Star Walk !

All students have accounts through BWE on RAZ Kids. They know their login. The teacher name : eteacher35
