to whom this may concern,

I’m Jordana Tagirara. I’m in year 12 and I attend Thomas More College. Would you be able to do any interview for me regarding Children and Social Networking.

Looking forward to speaking with you in the future.

Kind Regards,

I think technology is a great tool for children to learn from although I also think it is necessary for children to have a balance between technology and nature!Unfortunately in today’s world with the rapid growth of technology it has become a necessity to integrate technology into our children’s lives.I think it depends more on how much technology and what kind of technology we expose our children too!I personally monitor my children’s interaction with what kind of programs and technology I think are suitable.To name a few that I have found that have a great balance are ABC learning eggs,Justine Clarke and Life for Beginners, they have all designed products that interact with children not just through technology but also exposing them to nature!
