20 iPad Apps To Teach Elementary Reading | TeachThought - 22 views

    "As anyone with a toddler knows, iPads are addictive for children. They seem to have some sort of special radar that lets them know when an iDevice is within their reach, and they'll do anything they can to get their hands on them.
