The Digital Age has changed the way that we acquire knowledge and has provided ways for us to accumulate knowledge at a more rapid pace than before we had access to computers. Just about everyone we know has access to some type of digital product, whether it be mobile phones, iPad’s, computers, videos, or tablets. Many of us rely on these products to help us make important decisions in our lives about products and services.
In their desire to help their children to develop their talents and to expose the child to an environment of learning, many parents are choosing interactive videos to teach their children about life. Some parents desire to give their children a head start on their learning process to ensure that they have acquired the knowledge and necessary skills to help them perform better in school.
As a result, many parents who value a musical education for their children are choosing the Baby Einstein videos and DVD’s to help educate them. Many understand the benefits of a music education and desire to groom their children before they enter preschool. Studies have shown that children who have a music education have better reading and math skills and perform better on standardized tests.
With the introduction of interactive videos, educators fear that parents will use it as a way to keep the child occupied while they do their work around the house or take a needed break away from the child. However, educators warn that the best way to utilize the videos in an effort to educate the children is to engage in discussions with the child after viewing to reinforce what they have learned. In this way, the child has a better chance of learning than they would if they were left on their own.
