Technology: The impact of ipad on a child's education?

Technology is here to stay and as serious child educators, we need to continually consider the impact and importance of it on our children, especially in the classroom. For many Montessorians, technology should either be kept out of or kept to a minimum in the classroom. This is especially true before and during a child's sensitive periods.

Regardless of where you stand on this issue, parents and their children will be asking for our input on this issue.

Let's consider the recent addition of Apple's Ipad to the marketplace. Watch this video interview of a tech savvy educator on it's potential impact.  Hmmmm? How will an ipad do at Sandpaper Numerals???
