Kids and Computers

In an interesting article called Nonsense, an expert from Sesame Street takes on some myths about young kids and computers:
"Indeed, whether a child is two or 12 years old, computer learning is greatly enhanced when parents collaborate with their kids on solving problems and playing games. Success is also more likely when children work together. In one study of 56 fourth-graders, Sesame Workshop researchers found that students working in pairs obtained more right answers and devised more effective strategies than children working alone."
