Kids' Use Of The Web Has Its Benefits
from the start-'em-surfing-young dept
A new study has found that low income kids who spend time surfing the web at home do better than kids who don’t surf the web at home. This should be pretty obvious, since it helps kids learn to read and to do research. The researchers found it interesting to see how the kids split up their internet surfing activities. They were given no restrictions or filters, and allowed to do whatever they wanted. While the kids did end up surfing some porn, playing some games, and downloading music, they spent the most time doing research for school or personal interests.
