There is now a technology they call tag reading systems like the products offered by Leapfrog. Tag reading systems teach children how to read with its state of the art tag reader that has a minute and high-technology infrared camera at the tip of the reader.
This camera can read letters, words, and symbols by pointing it to a specific word, letter or symbols you want to hear. Children can read a collection of stories, new ones and classic ones, that have specialized dotted pages for the tag reader. It has a built-in 16MB memory that can manage 5 different books.
Tag reading systems are really the best ways to teach kids of this generation of computers and technology. Here are some specific reasons why tag reading systems are good.
It is very easy to use. All the child has to do is to point the Tag reader to the words and symbols and listen to the correct pronunciation.
The system is also very flexible. It cannot just read words and symbols or letters, it can also sing by pointing the reader to the characters. It is like the book comes to life. If you also want to read only words or the entire line or sentence, you can also do so with your Tag reader.
Parents can also monitor the child's reading progress by taking advantage of the LeapFrog Learning Path. What the parents have to do is to connect the reader to the learning path to see what their children are reading. There are also suggestions for future reading materials based on the child's progress.
Children are the ones who make their learning pace. This way, they are not forced to do something which they do not want to do. This makes them more independent and responsible when it comes to learning.
If the parents have to do something for a few minutes, they can just live their children on their own because they can use the Tag reading systems by themselves. Adults do not always need to closely monitor their children. But of course, they have to check on them once in a while.
Tag reading systems will also make your children tech-savvy or knowledgeable about the technology. In this fast-paced and highly technological world, you do not want your children to be left behind. This method of reading will give them an edge when it comes to technology compared to applying the traditional ways of learning how to read.
Books are great and most people cannot live without them. They allow people to learn a lot of things in a very traditional method. However, you should also take advantage of what today's technology has to offer. They are made to improve people's life and knowledge.
