Smartphones apps trends may decrease development of social skills.Most of us aware that a child learns best through hands-on and face-to-face experiences. But we don’t know the exact effects of interactive mobile devices which could spoil the brain development phase of a young student which is in a stage of learning and exploring new things throughout the study stage which is more important for their future . To be safe side Parents and Teachers should try each application before allowing their child or student to access it. If it’s good for learning, Teachers should use these applications with their students as using interactive media together enhances its educational value. Best practice we shouldn’t keep any unwanted apps in our mobile nor in student mobile so that they don’t get access to it and can spend more time in practical hands-on instead of mobile apps.
