My child already doesn’t want to read, and if I give them a tablet computer?

Place: Primary Audiovisual Room (Audiovisuals de Primària)

“Character is not an item of knowledge which can be taught through learning or imitation. It is a conquest made during life through personal exercise and through personal experience.”

Maria Montessori, Education for a New World (1946)


  • Why does my child no longer want to read?
  • What are the disadvantages of offering new technologies at an early age?

  • How does access to technological devices affect children's emotions?

  • How is intellectual development affected in children who have regular access to mobile phones, computers or tablets?


Reading habits originate, and in some cases are consolidated, in the infantile and adolescent stages. The combination of the use and abuse of screens and the impoverishment of language skills make today's children less critical and more easily manipulated, and ultimately less independent as people.

As Primary and Secondary students get caught up in the use and abuse of screens, they lose the taste for reading, as well as the time they can devote to it every day. There is an inversely proportional relationship between the use and abuse of screens and the desire and time spent reading.

All of this also has an impact on their cognitive abilities at a key age in their intellectual development.

In this workshop on screens and literature, we will discuss the dangers of using and abusing screens and the benefits that reading children’s classics can bring.

This activity is carried out in Catalan.

Childcare service: childcare service is offered to those families who already come to the school. The schedule will be from 5pm to 6:30pm upon registration.
