LEFT ME COLD

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - CONTENTS -

Neu­ro­science shows that young

chil­dren need a stim­u­lat­ing

en­vi­ron­ment in or­der to de­velop

and strengthen neu­ral path­ways ( saweek­end, 28/01/12). Out­comes­based ed­u­ca­tion in the tod­dler

years, “hid­den” lessons and an

over-reliance on tech­nol­ogy are

not the an­swer. Down­load­ing Apps

does not re­place ac­tual ex­pe­ri­ence.

The photo of a two-year-old

wield­ing an ipad left me cold.
