Earlier this school year, Flint Lake Elementary School introduced its kindergarten students to the laptop computer lab. In the past, our greatest concern had been teaching students to log in since their letter identification skills would still be developing; however, this year introduced a new wrinkle: dirty computer screens. Yes, the ubiquity of tablet devices in our daily lives resulted in our kindergartners instinctually reaching out to swipe their computer screens to advance to the next page or to unlock the device! This humorous anecdote illustrates the sheer explosion of technology exposure our children now enjoy.
