Since we are on the go a lot the children utilized mobile devices frequently (tablets, Kindles cellphones etc). But they don't just use these devices to play games on. They use them to enhance their learning, take tours, read books, and identify nature/wildlife. Technology really is a wonderful thing if used correctly.

Here are 10 reasons why we love tablets:

1) There are tons of FREE eBooks available to download.
2) They work great with all learning styles.
3) They make it easy to keep up with current events - Flipboard Social News Magazine is one of our favorite apps.
4) They enhance tours of museums and landmarks - check out these must have fieldtrip apps.
5) There are lots of educational apps available and many are FREE - check out these 45+ FREE Android apps.
6) They help make history come to life - check out these great Civil War apps.
7) They help the environment by eliminating paper waste.
8) They teach very important and necessary computer skills such as typing, coding, etc.
9) They are great for researching topics - I love having Google on the go!
10) The children love to use them!!

I am sure I could come up with many more reasons as to why tablets rock! What are some of the reasons you love your Kindle, tablet or other mobile device?

We use our tablet in school daily! We love it for games and keeping up with the Mars Rovers and other NASA space explorations.
