Today, 95% of teachers are using technology in the classroom. So it is becoming increasingly important and advantageous for children to have the technology necessary to fully participate.
However, tablets are expensive and sometimes not worth the price tag. In order to provide parents with a guide and help you to know which tablets are the best in class and which are affordable and efficient, we put together a list of the best tablets for your preschool children.
There are a couple of factors that are valuable in a children's tablet, more so than with an adult's device.
When it comes to technology for preschool-age children, you really want a tablet that is robust.
Often children may drop them or treat them with a little less care than an adult might, so at the very least, you need to buy a case to protect those tablets. And when considering preschool technology for learning, you can't just assume that any old junk tablet will do. As applications and technology advance, tablets need to have the right specs to cope.
Make sure your tablet has decent RAM to deal with multitasking and quickly switching apps, as well as some good storage such as 16GB or more.
Alternatively, if there is an SD or MicroSD card slot available, you can always upgrade the storage space later.
Because there is such a large variety of tablets on the market and many come with very different focuses, we have selected just three which meet a couple of different criteria.
Each works quickly and can run a multitude of applications, but they each differ drastically on one key point.
The iPad Mini base model will set you back by $399, and that's without accessories like the keyboard case or Apple Pencil to really improve its functionality as a learning tablet.
But there is an important reason it's on this list. It. Is. Brilliant.
Whether you are an Apple fan or not, the speed, capabilities, beautiful screen, and quality of this device sets it distinctly apart from the rest of the tablet world.
It can be an excellent companion for school-age children and comes with built-in parental features that allow you to customize it to your needs.
For just $49.99, you can't get cheaper without sacrificing every bit of quality a tablet should offer than the Amazon Fire 7.
This impressive compact tablet has dedicated features for children using it and parents to monitor its usage.
It even comes in bundles with great cases to keep it safe, and although the available applications are more limited than a dedicated Android or Apple device, there is more than enough here to keep your little ones going and help with their classwork.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 is an excellent compromise between expensive and cheap.
Coming in at just under $200, you get all of the functionality of a Samsung tablet in a compact and well-built device.
Running Android, this device is more than capable of running any tasks your little ones may be required to perform as well as featuring great apps to wind down and relax.
And it even has expandable storage with a MicroSD slot.
Of course, technology can only help so much. Kids learn at their best when they eat right. For more about how healthy eating can impact children's learning, why not check out this post?
So, when it comes to preschool technology, there is plenty on the market. But if you are looking for something reliable that can aid in your children's education journey, these tablets are the best available options.
The best tablets for your preschool-age children are a combination of functional and recreational. Sturdy and affordable. Which will you pick?
