Choose the best inexpensive or least expensive touch tablet for children (or non-touch), and the educational tablet has become difficult as the supply is large and the functions different.
Here are some criteria to study before purchasing this High-Tech product:
Most of the existing models on the market use the Android operating system (Android tablet). They are not powerful.
Since it is intended for children, this accessory is shockproof. It is protected by a hull against breakage. A case is sometimes added.
Connected or not:
Some models do not offer internet access. But if these models are connected, browsing the internet is peaceful. They have an effective parental control system with powerful filters.
They allow you to play, watch cartoons often preinstalled, read and listen to stories. And often a multi-pixel camera is integrated. A card reader accompanies it because the internal storage space is limited and a memory card slot is provided to increase the storage capacity.
Most are Android tablets. Commercial tablets can be simple or sophisticated (quad core for example), with the play store and google play installed or not.
For or against
Unanimous opinion does not exist because there are those who are against and those who are for the use of this object by the child.
The arguments generally announced are superficial. The former ones defend preservation against the technological invader and prefer traditional reading methods. The seconds are based on the main idea of letting the child learn to live with these products. For them, children live with screens of all kinds.
Opinion of health professionals
Several conferences have discussed this problem of the use of the tablet by the child (time point of view). Doctors, teachers, psychiatrists, speech-language pathologists, psychologists and other lay people agree that the tablet has harmful effects on its use.
Among the disadvantages and harms of its use, we can cite the best known:
Many specialists have confirmed the danger of waves. In fact, as soon as it is connected to the internet, a tablet emits electromagnetic waves, the harmful effects of which on health, from children to adults, have been proven by several studies. A French association known for its fight for security in wireless technologies, demanded that this product be banned before the age of 6 years. This request has not yet had the desired effect.
Some fun and educational games installed are beneficial. But if the time spent in front of the screen is not respected, they are harmful to the child's sight. Excessive use of this High-Tech product can also influence the motor development of the hands. In addition, it has been shown that 2 hours of exposure to screens can generate sleep disturbances, especially in the youngest. It is therefore recommended not to let the child play at night.
It has also been proven that we remember better what we write than what we type and what we write or draw reinforce learning.
Commercial touchscreen tablet (or non-touchscreen)
Buying a tablet is good, but be aware that there are not many applications included. So, either download free apps or pay for others. In what follows, we’ll tell you about five popular apps that are also free, but in French language:
1- Learn to read with Syllabic
The method used to teach the child to read is based on the syllables that make up the words. Thus, a series of exercises is offered to the child, and each word presented is illustrated by an image and spoken out loud.
This application is interesting despite some weaknesses:
- The interface is simple and well studied,
- The educational component is interesting,
- The voice is that of a robot, it is emotionless.
2- Children's piano music and song
This application allows the child to get to know the first basics of the piano while playing. The first scores are free. Then the 10 additional partitions cost only €3 maximum.
3- 10 fingers to learn to count
This application is interesting. It allows the child to:
- to count up to 10,
- to work on the motor skills of the fingers,
- to recognize the numbers and to know the quantities,
- to learn about additions,
- to count in several languages.
4- Learn letters with Kindergarten in "Servane"
The application allows the child to discover the forms of writing the letters of the alphabet. Exercises are there to put a letter in its appropriate place or to find the letter pronounced.
5- Alphamonstre to know everything about letters
It teaches the child the different ways of writing a letter, upper case, lower case, scripts and so on. Several exercises and games are included.
There are plenty of free applications to download or paid to buy on the net, old and new scalable applications. We recommend a single address specializing in applications for children's tablets: Applications for children's tablet which tells you about "children and screens", "tablets at school", "selection of applications" and the site has an application store for children.
