“Letting kids use or own iPads is controversial. Parents, teachers and others aren’t so sure about letting kids get sucked into yet another electronic diversion. Pilot programs at a few schools around the country to experiment with iPad-based learning tools are often met with criticism by parents and teachers alike.
Everybody’s asking: Are iPads healthy for children?
I’m here to tell you: That’s the wrong question.
The right question is this: Is the iPad a healthy ‘replacement’ for TV? And I believe the answer is a resounding yes.”
