Gone are the days of no internet on the basic Nokia phones where the most technical it got was playing snake in your spare time. Whichever tech you decide to get you will need to know how to set it up and how to use it should you or your children run into problems while operating it.
Occasionally tech does go wrong and there is simply nothing you could have done to stop it from happening. When this happens refer back to the user manual or check on forums to see if it’s a common occurrence with that particular brand,
Using Online Resources
When it comes to homework there are so many websites and resources you can use online. All you need to do is type into the address bar what you are searching for and the list appears. What happens if the website you are using to search crashes, for example, you may be using Safari on Apple products to conduct your search. If there is a safari glitch then the page you are looking for will not load and safari will just freeze. This can happen because there are too many tabs open or if the software has not been updated in some time.
