• Amid the debate on iPads for young learners, both sides raise interesting concerns. Here’s a peek:

    • Has the Information Age turned into an information overload?

    • The abundance of technology can create a “technology addiction” in children.

    • “Now we have video games, computers and cellphones. It is overwhelming for young children and creates patterns of behaviors similar to addiction patterns.”

    • Schools need proper communication and strategies for using them before students receive the devices

    • There needs to be an open line of communication between the schools and the parents before the devices are distributed.
