STOP! Children’s Dependence on Smartphones and Decline in Academic Ability ~Individual Guidance School Led by the University of Tokyo Graduated Principal Starts “Free Individual Counseling Sessions for Junior High School Students on How to Get Along with Smartphones and Games to Improve Academic Ability”~
What is the “new effort” to help parents who are raising children, necessary for children of the Internet generation?

AC Forte Co., Ltd. (Kunitachi, Tokyo, Representative and Principal Jun Kitayama), which operates the tutoring school Forte, warns of the “tendency of dependence” accompanying the recent rapid increase in the use of the Internet and smartphones by children.
On November 1, 2022, we started an initiative to teach parents how to interact with their children on smartphones in order to prevent children from declining academic ability due to smartphone dependence. Rising Smartphone Addiction: 89.1% of Elementary School Students Use the Internet
According to a survey by the Cabinet Office (FY2021 Youth Internet Usage Environment Survey: Survey Results (Preliminary Report)), the number of people using the Internet is getting younger and younger. In fact, 89.1% of elementary school children aged 6 to 9 use the Internet.

In addition, 98.2% of junior high school students use the Internet, and smartphones (including terminals without a contract) are the most common devices for Internet use at 72.6%, followed by game consoles at 61.2%. . In addition, 48.0% are tablets provided by schools, and 46.0% are personal computers and tablets for home use.
Children are using the Internet in ways parents might not expect. The effect of 2 hours of learning disappears when using a smartphone Currently, the number of points of contact between children and the Internet continues to increase, but Professor Ryuta Kawashima of Tohoku University says, “Even if you study at home for two hours, if you spend more than three hours using your cell phone or smartphone, the learning effect will be lost.” pointing out.
Furthermore, Professor Kawashima says, “The more time children use smartphones and the Internet on weekdays, the more their academic ability declines.” On the other hand, he points out that children who use smartphones or the Internet for less than an hour have higher academic performance than children who do not use smartphones or the Internet at all.
There are many children who have smartphones and games among the students of the tutoring cram school forte. Among them, students who are able to handle smartphones and games appropriately improve their academic skills and often pass the school of their choice.
Of course, some of these students are able to exercise self-restraint, but I feel that in many cases, the rules for using smartphones and games at home have permeated them.
In other words, it can be said that what is necessary for
child-rearing in the Internet generation is for parents to support their children so that they can socialize appropriately, instead of taking away online devices such as smartphones and games from their children.
For junior high school students, how to interact with smartphones and games to improve academic ability Free individual consultation This time, the tutoring school Forte will hold a “free individual consultation session for junior high school students, how to interact with smartphones and games to improve their academic ability” for junior high school first and second year students who are looking at high school entrance exams and choosing their desired school. did. At our cram school, we provide individual guidance with learning consulting for elementary school students, junior high school students, and high school students. For each grade, we will tell you how to get along with your smartphone (how to wear it) in a
“convincing way for children” based on the know-how that has been used to prepare for junior high school, high school, and university entrance exams.
Even children who are mentally immature and are not good at
self-control can learn how to properly interact with smartphones and make suggestions so that they can learn more. We can also provide “Omoiyarotto Child Care WiFi”, a tool that allows parents to manage the Internet connection of their children’s devices.
“Omoiyarotto Child-rearing WiFi” is a tool that allows parents to remotely limit Wi-Fi usage time at home and switch Wi-Fi ON / OFF from a browser using a smartphone or computer. This will allow parents to decide how long their children can use Wi-Fi.
