Children need to experience being bored

I believe that children in modern society have lost the ability to create their own fun in being creative in ways to amuse and entertain themselves. The majority of children in society are completely reliant on ICT’s such as tablets and iPads to amuse themselves. Although these resources have huge benefits to increasing creativity and enhancing learning they can also have an inverse effect. With children consumed by pointless games children and no longer engaging in the creative and imaginative life of a young child.

This is a link to an article that describes this.

  3. I think I’ll have to disagree with you on this one. I don’t think students should ever have to learn to be bored! When students are learning they are excited and engaged and I hope they will be so in my classroom.
    Quiet times for reflection and deep thought are a far cry from boredom.
