Technology has changed the way we do just about everything — we do it (whatever it is) faster, more efficiently and more cost-effectively. Educators constantly complain about how far their money doesn't stretch. Parents can now step in and make a big difference with academic software and hardware.
We've all heard that starting early is a key to academic success, so get your pre-K set a tablet and some learning games and watch them shine!
The End of the Traditional Textbook?
Paper textbooks have many disadvantages — they're easily damaged, some subject matter changes at an alarming rate and no student really enjoys lugging them around. Widely available for college students and growing in popularity for K-12 schools, parents can get electronic textbooks loaded on a tablet or portable computer. They cost significantly less, they can be updated without reprinting the whole book and they're so much lighter!
Tutoring by the Best in the World — Literally
Studying film? Watch them online. Studying philosophy or literature? Read the works of the masters. Studying history? Read the actual, primary source documents. Studying engineering? Search for "epic engineering failures" and laugh yourselves silly! Many professors record their lectures and upload them to be viewed on the college's website or commercial video services like YouTube.com.
Online tutoring (free and fee-based services) comes right to your school library, dorm room or your home on demand, 24/7!
