The author talks about the mastery of information-based technologies, where educators mostly associate literacy. It has been mentioned that the digital native of 2007 can search information from the web in seconds just by using keywords. Due to the advancing technology, many people are becoming less-and-less literate. Some ideas are provided in responding to this dilemma which include providing quality interactive materials with traditional materials for the preschoolers and replace passive television time with social and active games.
