    I agree with using technology appropriately to educate our children. All of my grandchildren have Nabi's and they range in age from 2-7. You cannot believe how fast the 2 year old learns. We stimulate our 2 yro by exposing him to the equipment in my lab by showing him what the equipment does. I am not talking about low tech stuff. I make nano materials using CVD processes and I grow diamond. I teach the kids all that I can and will teach them physics, chemistry and math well before they learn it in grade school or high school. My grandkids all already know what gravity is and what causes it. The 7 year old already knows basic algebra. We must do whatever we can to teach our young children that knowledge is power and knowledge is really everything in today's society.
