5 Lies Homeschoolers Believe About Their Kids and Tech – WHS 158

I’ve spoken about the use of technology in homeschooling for five years now. Occasionally, I encounter a parent that is either confused, confident, or concerned about their kids using smartphones, tablets, and computers to learn.

Some of the parents I talk to fear exposing their kids to too much tech while other think nothing short of total immersion will prepare them for life in the 21st century. Both of these points of view are extreme and today on the podcast I’m going address these and other misconceptions about homeschooling and tech.

1. Technology is a “magic bullet” that will solve all of their problems.

3. My kids would never look at inappropriate content with their smartphone or tablet.
4. My kids need to learn to use technology NOW or they’ll be behind.
5. I can do ALL of my homeschooling with technology.
