Technology - Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu


In this episode we cover:

  • Technology and Internet interaction shouldn’t be instead of face to face interaction.
  • Younger children should interact in face to face situations, rather than using technology.
  • Imagination is far more intricate and advanced than any piece of technology.
  • Disagreements with siblings will do more for your tamaiti’s brain development than sitting for 3 hours on technology.
  • Using technology is not harmful, the issue comes from what they are “not” doing and learning while on technology, for example:
    1. Not interacting with the world
    2. Not experiencing the environment
    3. Not learning about conflict resolution
