Baby doesn't need tech to learn

Child developmental experts say that the new and disturbing trend of getting toddlers iPads to play with is likely to do more long term harm than good.


Another good cautionary tale that reminds us that technology in and of itself is not sound pedagogy.  Technology can strengthen teaching and learning methods but isn't the main goal.  I am a huge fan of technology within education, but there are limits as the image of this poor baby suggests.
