I remember the first time my dad got a computer home. After endless debate between mom and him on whether we need a computer or more importantly whether our not having one was hindering their children’s growth and progress, my father one day took special permission from his boss to get his office laptop home. That evening the entire family gathered around his laptop and I logged on to the World Wide Web for the first time. After half an hour of fiddling, none of us really knew what to do with it and that was it.
The biggest hindrance is fear. As per Mr. Sanchit Vir Gogia, Founder & CEO, Greyhound Research though 52% parents in tier 1 cities introduce their kids to gadgets before the age of 5, an overwhelming 89% of parents in the country have a fear that they are not able to guide their children when helping them learn in an Information Age.
