John Pearce's curator insight, April 13, 2013 8:59 AM

Yet another article that backs up the thinking that tablets are rightly or wrongly making a difference to how young children interact with their world. The fact that they are growing up in world where screens are so ubiquitous begs the question regarding whether access to them should or indeed can be restricted and if so under what circumstances. The bigger question however might be more about whether through youngsters growing up with screens may mean that the novelty value we adults often ascribe to screens may fade sooner for them than for we adults. It may be that because of this youngsters may self regulate their interactions.

Mary Kate Lavin's curator insight, February 6, 2014 2:34 PM

Students are learning with the iPad because of  the kinesthetics of touching the screen.  This goes for children as small as 2 years old.  Students understand how to use a touch screen and are learning through touch.
