What is Cyber Parenting or Digital Parenting?

In this digital era, online learning has emerged as the go-to solution for schools. As online classes also known as virtual classes are convenient, kids enjoy them and can attend them in their own comfort. All that it takes is a smartphone (which nowadays kids have their own) devices, apps, digital device, or laptop and a good internet connection. So the need for physically going to school and attending the classes with utmost concentration is reduced here.

There is a sudden rise in online schools and classes are in this Covid-19 lockdown. As many schools and education institutes are shut all across the world, it has put no other option in front of the schools than taking the classes online. As a result, education has changed dramatically whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms such as Google Meet, Zoom App, Skype, etc. have come forward as a saviour in this Covid-19 pandemic.

However, this has brought many challenges for us. Is using online platforms really adding any value to kids’ education in this online world or digitalized world? Are students comfortable in using these online platforms or struggling with the increased screen time?

Well, we all know that nowadays kids use smartphones and spending more time than their parents do. So they are already comfortable and more knowledgeable about many apps, websites, and other cyber stuff. But now because of the online schools and classes the screen time has drastically increased for children and teenagers.

This digital shift may alienate economically disadvantaged students who don’t have access to the technology digital lessons require. Online courses create a sense of isolation too. Studying alone with only the computer as your companion can sometimes be terrifying. This may lead to becoming less social and can also decrease kids’ creativity.

Let us have a look at some of the positive effects of online schooling. Learning online can be more effective in a number of ways. Some research shows that on average, students retain 25-60% more material when learning online compared to only 8-10% in a classroom. Students are becoming more and more aware of using the internet and the various online platforms it offers.

They are heading towards becoming smart netizens. This will help in being digitally aware. These online classes require the students to be an active learner and be more responsible for their learning process . If these kids desire to become responsible, self-sufficient, freely minded citizens of this planet, then now's the time to start.

The 21st century is marked by the dawn of the Digital era. Automation and Digitalization have reached almost every industry. Now, we are in this cyber world welcoming the E generation. The age of technology has evolved and it is time for us to get prepared to face it.
