A new study based in the UK indicates that one in ten children, under ten years old owns an iPhone. One in twenty children in Primary have an iPad.
Not surprising to me because this year my 6 year old is getting an iPad! Using a device enhances the achievement of children academically, however I think it causes a larger divide for socialization.
If this targeted age group is allowed to get a device, parent monitoring is a MUST!
iPads needed in schools to close gap!
50%-60% increase in student achievement in reading, math, and science? I'm skeptical but it's something to look for in the near future. More research should be focused in this area. It would help Apple and help the students all the same!
