A research study from Denmark shows that when children from four to six years old was asked if they preferred to play games on an iPad or play with other children, two of three would choose to play with the iPad. However, Klaus Thestrup, reseacher at the Centre for Educational Development and Digital Media at Aarhus University says that this result does necessarily not need to be a bad thing. Digital tools used in the right way can create fellowship and lead to physical activity both at home and in preschool and school. The core to success is that adults is involved in the process, both to create the “learning-path” as well as set limits for children that get too carried away by the game.
