Are young children well suited to the use of technology? Modern technologies are extremely powerful because they rely on a few of the most powerful genetic biases we do have – the taste for visually presented information. The human mind has a tremendous bias for visually presented information. Television, videos, movies, and many computer programs are extremely visually oriented and therefore attract and keep the interest of young children. When young kids sit in front of the tv for hours, they don’t develop other perceptions. However, the technology that benefits young children the greatest are the ones that are interactive and enable the child to develop their curiosity, problem-solving and independent thinking skills.
