What is the world coming to. IPADS NEEDED FOR ALL TODDLERS? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have just ordered an iPad, after so much thought. And whilst researching, I came across this
    C'mon. Do these kids really need iPads, surely there's a cheaper way to enhance their learning. Am I just being irrational or is this just pure daftness?

    It is daft.
    I spent some time recently with a family whose dad brought home an iPad from work and he let his kids cart it around and they knew their way round it and everything. They're really nice kids, but it's amazing how normal things like that were to them. And they were all under ten, and god the squabbles about whose turn it was!
    I don't know what the iPad will do for them that a bit of thinking and pen and paper won't do.
