Technology for Early Learning

I'm a hardcore bibliophile, and believe wholeheartedly that young children need to be exposed to high quality literature. Especially underprivileged children who are at risk of the million-word-gap. However, I also understand the importance of exposing young children to technology, specifically if it is technology with an aim to educate as opposed to strictly entertain children. 

One recommendation I can comfortably make is LeapFrog. From their computer games to videos to e-readers, LeapFrog has a plethora of developmentally appropriate technology for young children that teaches them literacy and numeracy skills.

Children need to feel comfortable using technology and LeapFrog is a great way for young children to gain entry into the tech world.
