5:35 am
sot tisha raxo, kiddikat daycare "when you have to say put a block here, they need the hand-eye coordination, they need the gross motor, they need to do something other than looking at a tablet." bradford wiles, k-state assistant professor "so we think that we are teaching them things like their letters and numbers, but what we are really teaching them very well how to do, is use a touch screen." technology is becoming more integrated in classrooms and daycares. not just for preschoolers, but higher grades, as well. the daycare just got these tablets this year. but they use them sparingly because they rely on the old-fashioned way of doing things - sot tisha raxo, kiddikat daycare "kids need to go back to learning actually- the main level, the main stuff we were always taught." wiles also says toys that advertise making your child more intelligent--- may not be necessary for teaching your kids imaginative playtime. # new this morning.. virginia's house of delegates morning.. virginia's house of delegates approves a bill allowing students in
