I know we are parents of 4th 5th and 6th graders but I saw this article here on iVillage and was pretty blown away.

This sounds great on paper I suppose, but there are many practical pitfalls. I know our kids will lose anything and everything that is handed to them, and they are well over the age of 5. Also, these things better be durable! I can see them getting thrown in a backpack and being swung around, and a prime target for a spilled glass of milk!

I think children should be learning by interacting with people not with a screen.
