This promises to be a “never-ending” debate; or perhaps it will end when education around the world embraces technology? Are there merits to this argument versus the need for supervised learning; even if there is use of technology in the classroom or outside.
“Children in nurseries will soon be learning through Moocs (Massive Open Online Courses) as the internet revolution changes the face of learning, according to the man who first pioneered their use in higher education. Today’s two- and three-year-olds have been born with keyboards ‘pinned to their fingers’, Dr Anant Agarwal, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, insists. As a result, it makes sense to utilise the skills they had acquired and give them a basic start to literacy and numeracy through computer games in the kindergarten or nursery schools.”
