When it comes to my kids I like to know the facts, any facts. These things didn’t come with manuals and I don’t know about you but I’m dying for any kind of information that will let me have the littlest peak inside those pretty little heads. So I love stats! Especially stats that come in neat and tidy infographics. That’s why when I came across this really great infographic by MDG Advertising about kid tech according to Apple, I lost my mind!
There were two things that stood out for me, one being the study they did of the split Kindergarten class and how the group that used only an iPad for learning out performed the group that was taught the traditional way. Pretty powerful stuff! The other was how technology, and tablets in general, are helping special needs students. As autism and ADHD cases increase year over year there is a growing need for special needs education, having tools like the iPad could help bridge that gap with these students.
What are your thoughts? Do your kids use a tablet at home or at school?
