Parents watch out for educational websites who influence your children with marketing.

As parents, schools or teachers, we always look for new material and resources. When we find it for free or even cheap, we say “wow” this is amazing while not realising what is going on.

We studied three websites in South Africa, specifically in the educational content they provide.  

They advertise worksheets and other resources for very few rands. 

 

 

Then we started noticing one main reason why they do this. 

 

THEY ARE GIVING YOU WORKSHEETS OR CONTENT paid FOR BY A COMPANY. 

educational websites e-classroom resources and worksheets make influence your child

 

In short means, they design worksheets specifically with a business or company — for example, a local company or major brands in South Africa. 

These companies are called sponsors for these educational websites, or as we call them “companies on a mission to influence your children to influence you to buy from them (sponsors)”.
In the short run and long run, it influences your child.

 

Example 

Let’s say you have a child in grade 4.  They are busy with food items in LS.  Then food brands or major chains in South Africa sponsor “give money” to an educational website to put their logo, words they want to target your child with or even pictures/logo of their brand in worksheets for you to use for educational help.

Parents are aware this is done to make you buy something from these so-called “sponsors” as your child will stay “mommy no let’s go here I like them, or mommy can we please go to (shop) I know they have…” 

You will not even notice it as these educational websites and companies work hand in hand to influence your hard-earned money to buy from the sponsor of the resource, worksheet or classwork.

Next time think about what you give your children from websites you use.

Schools and teachers should also not be falling into this trap.

Something we will never do at Best Education is to give you resources from companies if they paid for it.  We don’t believe in educating learners of any age to be influenced by companies, but rather give your child information tools and skills to decide what to do and how to be open-minded and reason. 

 

In conclusion 

Be aware and open your mind to these education companies or educational CAPS websites. Don’t fall into a trap where your whole household may be changing in a few days or even years to come, because you never took notice of how fragile influencing children can be of any age. Their minds are like a sponge; it absorbs critical things. 

Focus on content rather than these educational websites, giving you resources for cheap and clearly state they have sponsors on their websites.
