Chalk Talk: Safely Using Tablets in Education
Many children across the country now utilize tablets such as iPads to complete their work. Utilizing this technology requires some level of care, however, to ensure students understand how to safely use tablets, the Internet, and the like. Basic rules should be used, particularly for younger children. Keeping liquids and foods away from tablets is a good first rule to ensure the tablet remains clean and free from the grime of leftover food and drink. Children should also be taught to carry the tablet with two hands to lessen the chance of a drop that might break the screen or otherwise cause damage. Parents should also set ground rules for the use of the tablet. Educational purposes should come first, with students earning time for play only after they have completed their work. Parents should discuss Internet safety as well, to ensure their child protects his or her personal information when utilizing the world wide web for school or other purposes.
