Teacher showing elementary students things you can do with tablets

Teach Elementary Students about “Technology & You”

Children are introduced to new technologies—especially digital devices, like phones and tablets—at younger and younger ages. One study found that, of a group of parents with a child under 12, more than one-third said that their child started interacting with a smartphone before age 5. As this continues to happen, the need to integrate technology awareness, literacy, and fluency into the elementary curriculum becomes more imperative. This includes teaching the history of modern technologies as well as their benefits and dangers. But how can you introduce these topics to a younger audience?  The World Almanac® for Kids Elementary—a fun reference database that helps young children develop online research skills—now has a new topic area students can explore that can help them become more thoughtful technology users and digital citizens: “Technology & You.” Written with older elementary students in mind, this new section includes coverage on these important topics:  The Rise of Technology: Learn about the Industrial Revolution, the Information Age, and today’s technologies. History of the Computer: Read about the first computers along with brief histories of IBM, Microsoft, and Apple. Technology as We Know It: Learn about email, the internet, cell phones, cloud computing, computer animation, and printing (including […]

Help Students Master Math with Infobase

We rely on technologies of all sorts every day, whether it’s turning on a light switch, taking life-saving medicine, or making phone calls on computers small enough to fit in our pockets. In fact, we rely on them so regularly, we often take them for granted—and they only seem to get better as time goes on. Not to mention technologies that help us improve our understanding of our world and the universe it inhabits, from the simplest school microscope to the James Webb Space Telescope. Yet, any scientist or inventor will tell you that no new technologies would exist without mathematics. Space travel would be impossible without calculus, and math is a key part of any architecture or construction projects. Math is a key part of medicine, too, as being able to calculate and measure out the correct dosage of a drug can make the difference between life and death. Being able to make the right calculations, measurements, and estimates makes technology possible. This Math 2.0 Day, take the time to check out some of the mathematics resources you can find in Infobase products to help students become comfortable and confident using math in their daily lives and better prepared […]
