My son plays with our iPads all the time. He is 2 years old, and thanks largely to the educational games we have downloaded for him, can count proficiently, recognise patterns and he has fantastic motor skills and hand-eye coordination. I'm not sure they are the way to go for secondary pupils, I would suggest they are better for a slightly younger generation, before moving on to a "proper" computer for secondary school. No matter how much apple, google and microsoft fight it out in the next few years, we are all still going to be using traditional keyboards and mice at work for the foreseeable, and training kids up to use them makes more sense to me.
