Online reading materials or printed resources for kids?

Some people believe that online reading materials should only be used for a child to learn to read, whereas others believe only printed material should be used. Discuss both views and give your opinion. #IELTS

Numerous people commonly believed that online reading resources must be the only method to teach children how to read. On the other hand, other discussed printed materials should be used exclusively in the reading learning process. Below, the following essay will demonstrate arguments and illustrations for both views.

On the one hand, reading from physical materials allow children to avoid distractions. In today’s technological era E-learning fosters fundamental skills. However, the internet is a world full of diverse platforms created for different purposes such as entertainment, information, recognition, and more. Thus, the chances of getting distracted are high and require an effective discipline to overcome this barrier. Without proper supervision in the early stages of life is easy to lose the education goal in front of the computer’s screen. Hence, during childhood grown-ups tend to strongly believe children should keep using physical materials in their learning process.

On the contrary, online platforms created by software experts are designed according to diverse age capabilities, as a result, many individuals are inclined to select online reading materials as the most effective tactic to teach. Whereas using printed materials is better to reduce distractions, online resources are produced having that in mind. Adult’s content cannot be compared to a child’s book. Authors, software developers, and other online collaborators of children’s material are designing specific strategies constantly to boost children’s IQ levels. Duolingo is the perfect epitome. Duolingo is a language app with two versions. One for kids and the other one for adults. Both frameworks are completely different because they were created considering their user’s profile.

In conclusion, both views illustrate reasons to foster discussion. While printed materials help kids to focus on just one task, online materials are full of distractors. However, software developers have awareness of this challenge and their children’s apps are design to keep them reading.

IDEAS:

Idea 1: Reading from physical materials allow children to avoid distractions.

Idea 2: Online platforms created by software experts are designed according to diverse age capabilities, as a result, many individuals are inclined to select online reading materials as the most effective tactic to teach.
