The iMacs were equipped with educational and learning program tools that allow kids to learn and parents to learn about these programs. Now, the iPads will still carry these programs, but also have child-friendly apps for the kids to play.
Besides these technological changes, there are no plans to change the low-rise tables that currently occupy this kid’s area.
I actually see quite a few kids play with the iPads, so it looks like a good idea. I think.
