Watch and Learn !
learning through Television or computers
It is likely that television is going to be the test of this modern world, and a new opportunity to see beyond the range of our vision on the whole
Modernization is taking toll over children's imaginative world ,we parents have to find an alternative so that it turns to be a boon for them rather than a curse, thus lets change ourselves and think in this way "its better not to beat 'em, instead try to join 'em " so we must use TV time to teach our kids it will work really well instead of just scolding our children to put off the TV. In fact, the more we are after them the more they disobey to go in their own way .To be honest we will exploit the media and will enhance the kids' learning capacity through visualization. children get really excited about things they learn about, through animation or live actions.Educational shows shown to them,sometimes really help we can capture their attention for longer period ,the combination of visual learning, music, and characters in the play or story encourage them to understand concepts faster.It creates coordination between their viewing and hearing If you try using TV time to support your kids while' learning,you would see a drastic change in their understanding the concepts and presumption too though the imaginative side of the child may be back seated and crippled . Have you ever noticed how your children learn through TV shows or other media that put them on visual concept?how they run to listen a jingle at the television and also how they imitate it latter.
In early times parents use to spend quantity and quality time with their kids but today parents are facing a cat's race and left with no choice,they are mostly working parents and are nearly tired by the time they are back home from work.and often children are seen sticking to the TV.This makes parents feel relieved as it is keeping their kids captured and they won't be disturbed by them.So here is the time to exploit the media or technology and change this bad habit for the good and encourage children to use this habit of watching TV for the better and make them learn educational stuff and enhance their knowledge.previously it was thought that watching too much TV was undermining literacy rate ,as children spent hours in front of TV and their studies were astray ed ,which is very true even today ,for which we must check the children as too much of ant thing is harmful but yes, what ever time our children spend on watching TV we must monitor their programmes and see that they watch something sensible
Let your children watch bed time stories with good moral , while the child is sitting ideal let him watch some educational programmes about animal on discovery channel or any other related channel .let then listen to rhymes with action from DVDs or CD even maths could be taught this way children often avoid learning tables ,this could be made easy for learning and giving concept if done through visual learning on television or computers .put the elder children to news channels so that they will start learning about their environment and its happenings . and also develop their communicating skill ,improve on their language and their approach to others .Media even encourage children to enhance their special talent by showing talent hunt shows ,its like paving the path for kids to explore themselves.Let the advancement prove to be a boon as we all know we have to change with time and adapt to modern methods of life rather than just beating the bush of olden times.
Animation could be made for lessons on various subjects and could be used to teach them ,which will be retained for a longer period by them.
Just take care that the distance of watching the screen is far enough to protect the eyes of the children,never let them sit too close to the TV
Eliminate distractions at homework time. no TV.no phone calls or getting engaged in any other thing that would distract your child ,be part of their work and create interest ,even when child watch educational programmes on television help them to understand what they are viewing instead leaving them to assume thing on their own
ONE MORE THING TO KEEP IN MIND IS THAT TV WILL NOT OVER TAKE PLAY TIME OR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY TIME .AND THEIR STUDY TIME ..
NEVER LET TV TIME TO BE A FEEDING TIME ,THIS WILL PUT YOUR CHILD ON EXCESSIVE EATING AS ONE NEVER KNOWS HOW MUCH YOU HAVE EATEN WHILE WATCHING TV.
