 As you’re preparing your child for school, there are several ways you can help him or her get ahead and succeed. In our increasingly technological world, you will do well to introduce your child to technology prior to the start of school, and a great way to do that is by allowing your child to take part in educational learning activities and games, using technology. Of course, as the parent, it is up to you to determine how much technology is too much, and what limits to place on your child’s use of it, but today The Tutoring Center in Orlando would like to share a few tips as to how you can use technology to benefit your child’s readiness for school.

Starting with language, if you pick games that are specifically focused on language learning and acquisition, you can expect that your child’s language skills will begin to improve. Begin with letters, games that help your child to recognize their shapes and what sounds the make. As your child improves the level of language games he or she is exposed to can also improve. You can find interactive short story apps as well as entire novels your child can benefit from reading. Perhaps the one step you need to make your child a lover of reading, is allowing him or her time for it on an electronic device.

When it comes to games, educational or sheer entertainment, you can expect that your child will begin to develop better hand-eye coordination. Depending on the level of the game that is being played it may be necessary for your child to move objects from one side of the screen to another, aim, and do so with increasing accuracy. Surely there are other ways to help improve your child’s hand-eye coordination, but this is just one in many opportunities.

Lastly, you can be sure that your child will begin placing more value in the concept of finishing tasks. In most gaming opportunities you will find a task orientation to the game. There are a certain number of points to be earned, objects to be find, and tasks to be completed prior to moving from one level to another. Though this will not originally translate into other areas of your child’s life, you can certainly take the time to point out the correlation and the importance of finishing tasks in order to move on, in the real world.

Once your child has begun his or her education, you may find that your child could benefit from even more assistance to reach the greatest academic success in a certain subject area, such as help working through challenging math. The Tutoring Center is equipped with a professional tutoring staff that will be glad to assist your child.
