Abstract

In today’s world, electronics are an instrumental part of day-to-day living. Electronics are impacting the whole life span as the world is becoming more digital, meaning the world must adapt to this change. The topic chosen is how do electronics affect language development in children. At younger and younger ages, children are being exposed to electronics to either learn, grab their attention, or preoccupy them. Does this positively or negatively impact how they learn language during their critical years of word learning? The paper aims to show that electronics do negatively affect language development in children, as it inhibits them from interacting with adults to develop language skills, and it will be harder to retain to then reuse in other instances.

The paper will address the effects electronics have on children when learning a language, the effects of long-term electronic use, and what other effects may arise from the constant use of electronics. Behavioral issues or physical issues can also be analyzed, maybe in terms of eye strain or hearing. Language is about receptive and expressive aspects, meaning spoken and heard, would staring at a device with headphones on constantly affect their language as well? By using electronics, children are drawn out of social situations, reducing their interaction either with adults, or other children their age. The paper is framed to show electronics in different ways and environments, such as in the educational setting, tablets and televisions.
