How children are using tablets (infographic)

Kid tech according to Apple - infographicIf you know a funny video about the 1-year old who tries to swipe the cover page of the print magazine, you won’t be surprised with figures included in an infographic prepared by the Florida-based creative agency MDG Advertising.

49% of first-time mobile tech users are up to 5-year old. Not a surprise, if you compare that with another number from the infographic: more than 80% of best-selling apps in the Education category of the iTunes Store are targeted to children.

It shows how Apple is infiltrating the lives of our children from the cradle to the classroom, as well as how these smart devices are having a real impact on literacy and learning levels, along with the benefits of these digital tools for special needs education.
