Whilst iPads are a wonderful tool in which to help students learn it must be stressed that it is only a tool. Many young students now have iPads in the classroom which these schools are often called Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to school. This then leads to the the question of are young students still given enough time to build not only their fine motor skills but their communication skills with others.
I found a very interesting peer reviewed article on the good and bad of ICT in young children. There are also so many differing opinions on the subject I wonder if there is right or wrong or maybe just used in moderation and with a balanced lifestyle.
In Joshua’s blog he states the amount of time that we all use ICT at yes we are using more and more and that is where I think we need to remember to take a break, breath and smell the roses.
