This study investigate how pre-school children use an iPad for educationally valuable activities. It aims at identifying ways in which teachers can facilitate iPads as a tool for learning, documenting and assessing the children's learning and allow children to transfer their knowledge,skills and creativity into abstract formats (iPad applications). So far the study revealed that pre-school children are capable of using the iPad, show a lot of interest in using it, but require help in identifying meaningful activities that are educationally valuable and channel their ideas into the more abstract iPad environment.
