As the prevalence of smart phones has grown in recent years, I have been waiting to see when development researchers would conduct a study to examine the impact of smart phone mobile applications (apps) on children’s learning. I own an iPhone, and yes, I admit I do use it to entertain my toddler when nothing else seems to keep his attention. It does seem to keep him entertained and happy while we have to wait in the check out lane or the doctor’s office. It was also a lifesaver on a recent 2-hour plane ride.
