Summary
The iPad has become an iconic device, and in many ways it is an ideal educational tool for children: user-friendly, compact, interactive, powerful, and even stylish! But for a parent, the idea of your child using an iPad can be a daunting one: How do you know what they are using it for? What are they looking at on the web? How and who are they communicating with online? A Parent's Guide to the iPad aims to put your mind at ease and help you understand the iPad, while guiding your child to explore this exciting machine, safely. It covers all key functions including education for kids of all ages, having fun with games, photos, music, creativity, social networking and security
