This video pretty much sums it all up. A father has capture the experience of his 2.5 year old’s first experience of the iPad. If this doesn’t convince any parent or teacher or administrator that the iPad will change everything we know about schools and schooling I don’t know what will.

And, of course, because he’s a boy, he learned how to shoot the shooting games and steer the racing games.
