Why iPad is not recommended for children from 0 - 6. From perspective of the Montessori Method.
1. Often iPad provokes the passive perception of information (I'm sitting-entertain me). It is the opposite of what happens in the classroom where child gains knowledge as a result of independent actions.
2. Information obtained through iPad offers very limited sensory experience: parts of sensory perceptions are not involved (smell and touch). In addition, not all sounds can be represented authentically, iPad produces reproduction of the real sounds.
