Kids really don’t need to be up to their eyeballs in technology, computing, the media, and the Internet, according to this morning’s Washington Post article A Caution on Kids, Technology. Apparently, Alliance for Childhood issued a report entitled Tech Tonic: Towards a New Literacy of Technology suggesting that the current state of education is way too tech heavy. Go figure! What do they suggest? Well, they suggest running, skipping, playing, frolicking, and socializing. As in being a kid. Tra-la-la! They believe these are the kinds of developmental experiences that a child needs to be successful into the 21st century and are not met solely by computers. I, for one, am scandalized.
