Stop paying an arm and a leg for educational electronic devices like the iPad

ipads for education

Everyone today is virtually connected in some fashion, and that’s even extending to children as young as eight years old, sometimes even younger. Devices like  iPads, Kindles and other tablets can be a great educational tool for children of all ages. There are just a massive amount of apps out there, they cover things like text books, fantasy books, math checking apps that help with homework, organization apps, games with vanguard hacks, you name it, there is an app for it! All sorts of awesome apps on one small device, but they come with a hefty price.

This presents a problem for parents who may not be able to keep up with the costs (and replacements). New smartphones start at a steep cost, $649, and most carriers no longer subsidize the cost. Kids all too frequently break and lose smartphones and tablets, and a brand new device may not be a wise investment for a child. Nearly 70% of parents reported that a child in their household has broken or lost at least one smartphone, according to a Gazelle survey.

We have six kids, yet we have had over 14 broken devices, I totally get it! These things are NOT cheap! There is no way I could afford to buy a new iPad each time one was broken, but our kids use their tablets on a daily basis.
