Introduction
Elizabeth undefined Panic culture 
0:00:05.7
This question is huge. I started comparing it to global warning, its something we have to address right now, and we cannot put it under the carpet. Things are hanging so fast. I was thinking with a friend, that was talking about Japan, we are being them by ten years everyone has this, technology, they are all technologically savvy, they no longer have these smart phones or iPhones, now they have it on their glasses, on their watches. They are so hooked up. The kids at school are bored because who could compete with technology?
 
I asked a fellow teacher, he was a phished teacher and he remembers when he was first involved with technology, when it was these huge computers, it was only like 30 years, so much has happened.
I spoke with my students, they are like 10 and they recall when they were5 or 6 when they first got a computer. They talked about their brothers and sisters. One of the little brothers, so addicted, they cannot take it away fro them this kid, he had a temper tantrum.

Natia Sandra: 
 
Janice: 09 min - kid with no technologies at home still manage to learn from others who have it.. they still manage to interact with technology... to engage ...
 
 
Andrea 2- USES
How is technology helping your child?What are they doing?
 
Xue Janice: .... there is no denying everyone will agree when children around age 2 and so on begin to puzzle it really increases their development and their cognitive skills and reading writing all about is included in all these apps, are inclusive .... let's get to the basics.. We learn a lot how do we learn ABC, how we learn anything we see happen again and again and then we know it... So using this technology children have become really adapt to many many different skills and it is absolutely amazing but again it is important like you said, at some point that there is a very balance... in other sense it take over and then you will be spending too much time in front of the screen and not getting enough fresh air.... 
 
Isabelle: Not the reading that we were exposed to. Even like 10 years ago. It is quick reading. It is immediate gratification. They no longer have to be going to the library they could just go to their ipads.

Pour les tablettes, qu'est qui est bien c'est que tu va avoir le pictogram sur la tablette et ci l'enfant appuit sur le pictogram..ca dits le mot, donc l'enfant tranquillement va faire des associations entres les images at les mots. Graduellement il va pouvoir developer ses cognisances linguistic... lui-meme peut arriver a faire des demandes pour reponds a ses besoins par la tablette electronique.  
 
01:55  
“Je veux”,  la il va appuier si il veut boire, il va prendre le pictogram pour boire par exemple.  Si il a envit aller a la salle de bain. Il va developper un grand autonomie aussi.  Ils vont etre capables... Son plus grandes difficulte c'est sont pas capables a dire qu'est qu'ils veulent. Souvent ca pourrais ____ des crises ou des desorganizations parce qu'il comprends pas.  avec la tablette ils sont reussi a etre en contact avec leurs parents et professeurs.
02:57(this part also posted in Q3)
Social interactions too. We often use social scenarios with them, for example to go to the dentist, it will often be situations that are unknown, out of their usual ritual or habit.  It's a little story that explains...When I go to the dentist, I will sit in the chair and the dentist will then play in my mouth.  To learn how to act in certain social situations.  To learn to take the bus, interacting with someone.
What should I do when someone says hi?   I don't necessarily know that I should say hello.
They will be little stories that explain.  When they say hi, I should say hi in return and ask how are you? Etc.
 
Melanie: and I find that it gives them time to like share with their friends; and because they are excited to see their friends do it they take their turns they share they problem solve. Matching colours, counting, I find that it makes them think more, its gets them the colourful colors they get rewards at the end like if they match the right way they say "great job" or "high five" you can see the excitement in them from being able to do it.
 
 
Xue Entertainment help or hinder?
Elizabeth undefined rose 0:00:10.7 I don’t think that it is helping them in any type of different type of way. I think it is more used to help me to distract them and basically I use it in moderation but I don’t think it’s actually developing any differently if they didn’t have the technology.
 
 Patricia 0:02:49.4- Their only a loud to use it once their chores are done and even at that we often try to keep them busy, we try not to make that a place for them to find leisure. it really usually like a last resort thing, I mean it’s a rainy day, there’s nothing to do the child is really bored, there is nothing on TV she will get have an hour on her Ipad. But, other than that it’s really not given to her. She really has to think about it once in a blue moon and ask for it then we give it to her.
 
Andrea Catherine:
06:16 
Sometimes the transition from one activity to another: taking the bus to go somewhere can be really (disturbing?) because they don't necessarily know what's coming. Music sometimes helps students who have more difficulty with transitions, it's a way for them to feel (regulated?) 
 
 
 
INTEGRATION
 
  • School Setting
 
Xue Melanie... 0:02:08.1- No, we do integrate it in purpose we have computer twice a week, Tuesday and Thursdays, between the 3 to 5 year olds. The younger ones we do sometimes integrate they have a tablet that goes around the daycare that the kids share and there's different educational activities on it and there are also some also like videos of like numbers and counting and songs. But it’s really more towards the 3 to 5 year olds that we purposely integrate it.
Natia janice: 11 min -  Teachers facilitate but not parents in terms of using technology ...  the parents do not recognize that there are so many more in so many other site, so many other means of interaction that the kid can benefit from besides the games...
 
 
Elizabeth undefined Aline: 0:02:55.6
No actually it was integrated by the school. The school sent the school a letter and I looked at it myself and I went ahead and let my son use it. 
0:03:56.6
I did not allow them to be......I just let her jump into it. I introduced it to her myself. Because I thought it would built her knowledge. An also I notice there is a bit of good and a bit of bad, to tell you the truth. As a parent we have to be on our Ps and our Qs. We have to set boundaries. So I mean I do feel bad and in a way I don’t. 
 
Ashley Catherine:

Social interactions too. We often use social scenarios with them, for example to go to the dentist, it will often be situations that are unknown, out of their usual ritual or habit.  It's a little story that explains...When I go to the dentist, I will sit in the chair and the dentist will then play in my mouth.  To learn how to act in certain social situations.  To learn to take the bus, interacting with someone.

The diagnosis isn't done before 2 and a half, 3 years old because before that it could just be seen as developmental delays.  There's a lot to consider before telling someone their child falls on the autistic spectrum.  If you see that your child has trouble at the level of language, basic intervention, that's where if your child needs to learn language and is very stimulated (by the tablet?) then it can be helpful even before a diagnosis.  Seeing an image of a dog, you press on it and it says “dog” They can learn the verbal category of the images.
 
08:48
Lots of things to consider: the age, capacity of the child.... lots of elements to consider.  The child could be 12 yeas old, but have the mental capacities of a child much younger.  Often we have specialists to refer them to...
 
  • Home setting 
 
Natia Sandra: So how is it integrated whether it is purposeful and planned? I do not think it is purposeful, No. I do not think parents sit around and say Okay, this will be a good program for my child... 
 
Sandra: ... So there is not that critical media literacy approach, where you say let's watch of the kids discuss gender, race representations....  I think there is too much variability in family for me to be able to say: yes, there is one. Certainly, there will be socio-economic divisions where those who are more educated with more money are going to more picky and openly media-literate with their kids, or keep them away while others say "stay here and watch". 
 
Xue luis: I usually integrate it. I make sure they know how to use technology.
 
They said when they first introduced to the computer when they were 5 or 6. It started first with the computer; they saw their parents using it. They could not wait to get their hands on it. They were allowed to play with the games. One of them was so interested, that he learnt to read, just because he wanted to do what he saw his mother do, learn to read, learn to write. At a very young age, they were already hooked up with spelling games, reading techniques. One of my friends has little nieces, these nieces use technology at 5 years old, the games, the parents use it as baby sitters, unfortunately, at family gatherings, after eating, yes they are very difficult, they go into the other room and they play their games, just to keep them quiet. They also have special films they want them to watch. They have their special games, their cartoon, they have ipads but it is locked and it is limited use. 
 
  • Mind the gap
 
isabelle:
I heard on CBC just this week Elizabeth, concerns of the parents and technology, and there are private companies that are servicing themselves. I know like our huge boards, a few schools have gotten this company to come in and teach the technological savvy to the kids and the teachers. The kids need special courses. Some schools have special courses. Maybe Leaster P peason school board is starting to do this. I am not sure. 
Ecole international has everyone with a tablet, but not all schools are plugged in.
0:07:21.3
As far as I am concerned it is not integrated. It should be but it is not
 
Isabelle in reference to a teachers perspective 0:08:42.7
It’s a huge responsibility; kids are going to need it, for their future, because all the jobs are demanding this. It makes me sad, I picture a scene with a kid comes in the classroom, kids are sitting at their own desk, hocked on, the scene are everywhere and they are learning what ever they want. And they are fascinated and learning, but there is no interaction between the different students. Perhaps they are interacting with forming their ideas on chat rooms or blogs, they are just typing it in, a responding to each other.

In 2012, almost 98 per cent of the top income households were connected to the Internet, compared to only 58 per cent of those earning less than $30,000.
Xue A home computer and Internet connection may sound like a luxury, but study after study shows it’s a necessity to help kids from lower-income families keep up at school.
A London School of Economics study found providing home Internet access to low income households closes the gap in use, “potentially reducing disadvantage.” It also found kids who have Internet access at home spend more time online, providing them with “higher levels of online skills and self-efficacy.”
 
 
Revisiting the digital divide in Canada: the impact of demographic factors on access to the internet, level of online activity, and social networking site usage.
The present study relies on the 2010 Canadian Internet Use Survey to investigate differences in people's access to the internet and level of online activity. The study not only revisits the digital divide in the Canadian context, but also expands current investigations by including an analysis of how demographic factors affect social networking site (SNS) adoption. The findings demonstrate that access to the internet reflects existing inequalities in society with income, education, rural/urban, immigration status, and age all affecting adoption patterns. Furthermore, the results show that inequality in access to the internet is now being mimicked in the level of online activity of internet users. More recent immigrants to Canada have lower rates of internet access; however, recent immigrants who are online have significantly higher levels of online activity than Canadian born residents and earlier immigrants. Additionally, women perform fewer activities online than men. People's use of SNSs differs in terms of education, gender, and age. Women were significantly more likely to use SNSs than men. Interestingly, high school graduates had the lowest percentage of adoption compared to all other education categories. Current students were by far the group that utilized SNSs the most. Canadian born, recent, and early immigrants all showed similar adoption rates of SNSs. Age is a strong predictor of SNS usage, with young people relying heavily on SNSs in comparison to those aged 55+. The findings demonstrate that the digital divide not only persists, but has expanded to include inequality in the level of online activity and SNS usage.

Unplug—Don't Drug: A Critical Look at the Influence of Technology on Child Behavior With an Alternative Way of Responding Other Than Evaluation and Drugging
Abstract:The past decade has seen an increase in personal use of electronic technology, with childhood television and video game use similarly increasing. Critical milestones for child motor and sensory development are not being met. Simultaneously, there is an increasing incidence of childhood physical, psychological, and behavior disorders, often accompanied by the prescription of psychotropic medication. One in six children exhibit signs of poor health, mental stress, or problems at school. Exposure to an average of 8 hours per day of various forms of technology use has resulted in a physically sedentary yet chaotically stressed existence for Canadian children. The detrimental effects of technology use on critical milestones for child development are reviewed. This commentary by apediatric occupational therapist outlines issues of concern for parents, family physicians, and pediatricians related to these trends and offers a novel treatment approach: Unplug—Don't Drug.

Washington post
7 out of 10 children younger than 8 have used a mobile device, a figure that has doubled in two years, according to be released Monday by Common Sense Media. Those children spend triple the time on mobile devices-about 12 min daily that they did in 2011, with playing games, using educational apps and watching videos among their most popular activities. 
Four out of 10 children younger than 2 are also using mobile devices, a jump from one in 10 two years ago. 
American Academy of Pediatrics has advised parents to limit their children’s time in front of screens, which is says may lead to attention problems, exposure to inappropriate and obesity. The AAP suggests children younger than 2 avoid any media use, and authors of its media policy say there is not enough research to support companies’ claims that smartphones and tablets can educate babies. Six out 10 children watch tv every day, compared with 17% of children who use a mobile device daily. The number of children using mobile devices daily doubled from 8% two years ago. And 28% use a mobile each week.
