I confess- I am an Apple junkie and I can't stress enough about how much it makes my life, as a mom easier. It just builds a seamless ecosystem that never wants you to ever exit that space. This is one brand that you can never have enough of.
Tried the new 9.7 inch iPad and Apple Pencil?
This is the one thing that has been on my list for a while- ever since I came across the amazing features it was build to have. Wonder why? Well, because of the faster performance, the powerful AR apps that make learning so much fun with the kids and of course the pencil that is compatible with this new launch. Learning for kids in this digital age has to be fun, engaging and should make the kids feel involved by bringing the concepts to life. That’s the power of AR on education.
