November 13, 2009, Newsletter Issue #227: Can I Use A Cell Phone As A Learning Tool For My Child?

Tip of the Week

When you give your child a cell phone gift card, you have a tool for staying in touch with your child, but a mobile phone for kids can also be an excellent learning tool. When you buy your child a Firefly cell phone for kids, or an LG Migo, use it to introduce them to number recognition.

Let your child help you when you dial the phone. Taking a little extra time to let your child help you enter the numbers will also help them remember the cell phone's key designations. Text messaging is also an excellent opportunity to learn. Studies done at Tokyo Denki University and Kent State have found cell phones to be useful tools in language development and communication skills. There are many creative ways to put a cell phone to work as part of your child's learning experience.
