(WTNH) — Every year students across the country are becoming more technologically-savvy. What is the most appropriate technology to help kids with their studies? Joe Ferraiolo, Area General Manager for Frontier Communications explains the do’s and don’ts.
Ferraiolo says an appropriate age to give kids a cellphone is when they are in middle school, because of the after school activities they become involved with. He says it’s important to always have the proper protocols and maintain “the phone is a privilege, not a right.”
With more apps being used by students and teachers, parents have to make sure they have enough bandwidth and data to support them.
Ferraiolo says always back up assignments on clouds to make sure they are safe.
