Is It Time We Introduced Cyber Security Into Our Children’s Upbringing? [Guest Post]

Is It Time We Introduced Cyber Security Into Our Children’s Upbringing?The technology and internet in today’s world are ever changing and evolving. How to make sure your privacy is secured online, and how to defend yourself from phishing emails, malware attacks and other forms of cyber threats are common topics for adults.

But what about the younger generation?

How can the society or parents teach young children to use the internet in a safe way? The kids growing up today are often introduced to smartphones, laptops or tablets at a very young age. When you look around, how many kids do you see using a smartphone? Personally, I see it relatively often.

Tech for Teaching: Modern Tools to Boost Up Homeschooling | Guest Post

Tech for Teaching: Modern Tools to Boost Up HomeschoolingHave you ever wondered how kids perceived learning? We want this to be a pleasant experience for them. We want them to be inspired by all the things they learn. We want them to keep wondering and exploring. With all those expectations, we tend to make learning a stressful experience for our kids. They are curious, but we’re usually not satisfied with that. We always expect them to impress us.

When parents are homeschooling their kids, the expectations can be truly burdening. That’s why we need structure, which will set our own expectations to acceptable limits but will also make learning a bit easier for the homeschoolers.

Today’s teens, however, are faced with curated and contrived images of beauty. Thanks to Instagram filters and the wonders of photoshop, bodies can be tweaked, faces can be glossed over and a look can be flawlessly transformed. Reality, it seems, is virtually blurred.  Continue Reading →
