As parents of Zuri (aka 'Bear') who is around 27 months old we have actively taken the approach of a near zero use of technology with him. We simply want him exposed to traditional forms of learning via playing with traditional toys, exploring (trees, plants, animals, eating bugs, video recorders, cables, etc) and developing his creative side. There are no TV's, iPad's, computers etc., in his life until he will be well into his two's and beyond and even then very little, limiting to educational use only.
Of course, this approach will not suit everyone and we have given this a great deal of thought. He will learn to use technology very quickly anyway....kids with no knowledge of computers, internet etc., have taught themselves even in the middle of a remote village in India with little or no assistance. See video below (or link: http://www.ted.com/talks/sugata_mitra_build_a_school_in_the_cloud).
Is Zuri at a disadvantage with this approach?
