Smartphones and computers may seen like a great idea for children because they allow children to access many educational programs and a lot of information, but I feel that this also contributes to short attention spans and kids wanting instant gratification. For example, I teach cello to my niece (10 years old) and she isn't improving much from week to week. She tells me every week that she likes cello, but she never puts in time or effort to practice on her own time. It's not like she doesn't have time to practice because I see her glued to her ipad whenever I visit. I don't think all kids are like her though.
