Truth is that a baby can read ipad if he have chance to do so. Recently, it happened when a one year old baby girl in the video inserted below clearly shows us that children, especially the little ones does not want to turn paper again before they read.
It is always been good seeing little children embracing technology. It has happened sometime ago when a 4 year old baby girl swipe her hand across a TV screen in frustration because of the baby was unable to get what she is looking for.
In this video, this little girl shows that the babies of nowadays are no more interested in reading the paper, magazine, but the new technology papers. Is it good to expose little children to technology at their earlier stages like this or not? Some people believes that, introducing a baby to iPad and some other mobile reading device before books in a sign of bad parenting, is that true or not?
To me, I do not agree. The reason is because it is good to show them what is hot now than to let them become older to then expose them to it because by then, another technology would have surfaced. That means, you don’t want the child to have the right experience. Giving your baby new technology gadgets to start playing with is not a bad idea, though. Take for example, if you love reading books from Kindle, why can’t you share that reading device with your baby? With this, that child will grow with the knowledge of reading from such device on the long run.
“Technology codes our minds, changes our OS. Apple products have done this extensively. The video shows how magazines are now useless and impossible to understand, for digital natives. It shows real life clip of a 1-year old, growing among touch screens and print. And how the latter becomes irrelevant. Medium is message. Humble tribute to Steve Jobs, by the most important person : a baby.”
