IT a threat against children’s learning

Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter notes researchers’ criticism against modern IT technology. Several researchers argue that the internet, social media and other types of information technology threaten children’s learning and also note that reading skills are deteriorating among Swedish school children.

Earlier this year, Swedish newspapers reported that schools in the town of Sollentuna had replaced ordinary books with iPads for school children. This was a piece of news that did not please minister of education, Jan Björklund. And this latest criticism from researchers seems to add substance to Björklund’s criticism.
