abacus learning will remove phone addiction


Have you ever considered why we still use pen and paper even though we have i-pads and tablets? Have you considered why we still depend upon newspapers when we have online news portals? Why use traditional crafts like weaving and embroidery or conventional musical instruments like flute, pianos, drums, etc, for musical production? By embracing the harmonious coexistence of technological innovation and traditional practices, we also cultivate a society that appreciates the richness of our heritage while moving forward to thrive. It is the same case with Abacus. Even though we live in a digital age, there are times when we feel the need to do things manually rather than depending on an electronic device. You might have seen old people playing traditional board games or puzzles: While there are numerous digital games available, older individuals often opt for traditional board games or puzzles. They enjoy the social interaction and physical engagement that comes with playing these games. It is this instinct of human beings where you feel the urge to do something independent rather than being tied to the digital world. The escapes from the city hush to a relaxed and calm village life happen in each of our lives. Don't we?

While using a calculator or any other gadget to do calculations saves time, it's easy, or there is no need to take the strain of thinking. That's where we all become lazy. Mathematical calculations boost brain activities strongly, which is why the Abacus was used tremendously in ancient times. Using an abacus for calculation not only strengthens the learner's cognitive skills but the motor skills as well. The psycho-motor development of the learner boosts their confidence level, which will also lead them to all-round development. Furthermore, the Abacus is often used as a transitional tool, bridging the gap between concrete and abstract mathematical concepts before transitioning to digital calculators or computer-based calculations. Its simplicity and portability make it accessible in various settings, including areas with limited access to technology or in situations where electronic devices may not be practical.

These innovative technologies will make your kid a smart kid, but don't you think they might get too lazy to think even for the most straightforward calculation? At this point, the Abacus ensures that your kid spends time off-screen with the abacus tool. It is not just a mere tool but something that will make your child sit down and focus. You could watch your kid doing calculations with the Abacus with utmost concentration.

Wait a minute; I might have confused you with the Digital Brain boost (technological augmentation) and Digital Brain Drain (technological fatigue). These are the two sides of technology, the good and the ugly. It's our call on which side to stick on! Sometimes people get confused and blame technology altogether,

And block access to technology for their kids. But have you ever considered the innumerable possibilities that technology has opened up for all of us? Let us take the case of AbacusMaster, where we provide each learner with an abacus tool with the assistance of an online interactive portal. By indulging the traditional method of Abacus learning with a technologically aided interactive portal, we aim to set a role model for technological augmentation.

As discussed before, the Abacus offers a tangible and visual representation of numerical concepts, allowing for a more hands-on and intuitive understanding of mathematical operations. It aids in developing a solid foundation in mathematical principles, especially in early education, by promoting mental arithmetic, problem-solving skills, and logical thinking. Moreover, the Abacus can be a valuable tool for individuals with visual impairments or those who prefer a non-digital calculation approach. Ultimately, the Abacus's enduring significance lies in its ability to enhance mathematical understanding, promote cognitive skills, and provide an alternative approach to computation to defend against technological fatigue.

Imagine returning home after a long day of work or completing household chores, only to find your child engaged and actively involved with the Abacus, rather than idly staring at their mobile phone. It's an ideal scenario, isn't it?

Listening to me all this time, I sincerely hope you've grasped the significance of introducing an Abacus into your child's routine. As a parent, it's natural to feel concerned about excessive phone usage and the detrimental effects it can have on their development. Thankfully, the Abacus proves to be a remarkable solution.

Don’t worry anymore! We all want the best for our children, and AbacusMaster always paves the way.
