SHHH! Please don't spill the beans! It's a Christmas surprise!
I'm setting a few things up so we're ready to rumble Christmas morning. The boys will be getting a new iPad mini for Christmas. Our iPad 1 has near reached the end of its life and this was an upgrade we decided would most benefit our home. As I have been playing with the different activities I want to set up on it for the boys I have learned about so many options that will revolutionize our homeschooling. The boys will have zero access to TV and movies on their iPad. There are folders set up for each subject with apps appropriate to their developmental level.
Apple has their iOS set up so that children younger than 13 can obtain their own Apple ID which is awesome with their new "Family Sharing" system. I can download the apps and music that I've already purchased onto their iPad. It's so sweet!
Happy Learning in the Digital Age!
