Internet for Kids
Submitter: I don’t even know where to start…it’s a vhs tape…that teaches kids how to use the internet…and it comes with a floppy disk! Do kids even know what vhs tapes and floppy disks are?!
Holly: Actually, in two public libraries I am aware of, the children’s departments are the only places where VHS tapes still exist. Maybe the parents got DVD players and passed on their VCRs to the kids? Even so, this is NOT the way to learn how to use the Internet in 2010! I mean, one of the topics listed in the image below is “Discussing the advantages of the Internet.” It’s not a matter of advantages and disadvantages to today’s kids. It just…IS – and always was in their lifetime.
