Parents as scaffolders

A couple of years ago now, I contacted this blogger, Beth, as I was very interested in what she had to say about scaffolding her child's understanding about blogs and wanted her permission to include her practice as an example in a chapter I was writing about young children and digital literacy. It seemed to me that Beth was supporting her child's understanding about blogging as a social practice in a similar manner to the way in which many other parents support their children's understanding of print-based literacy practices. Since then I have kept in touch with Beth's blog and noted that she has recorded other instances of family digital literacy practices. I do recommend a visit to Beth's blog for those of you interested in early childhood and technologies (click on the category 'Ed tech and early childhood' in the LH column). I am very interested in the phenomenon of 'tech-savvy' parents blogging about their technological practices with their children, as this, I think, gives us an insight into what other parents might be doing more generally with their children in five or six year's time, but I have not come across any other blogs like Beth's - let me know if you do!

Hello parents! visit the following site http://www.24x7guru.com, it is an online assessment platform that allows students between classes 3 and 10 the opportunity to strengthen their academic foundation by identifying their strengths & weaknesses in subjects such as Mathematics & Science. This tool will improve your child interest on maths and science subjects.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my
apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic
but I had to share it with someone!

hard on. Any recommendations?

I'm really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?
