PC Magazine (via Google Surveys) polled 1,000 parents with children ranging from preschool to college age on what tech they’re planning to buy for their kids for this school year. Almost half of parents said they intend to buy tablets for their preschool (24%) and elementary school (25%) children. Though they can be expensive, tablets are large and give kids a tactile experience that’s harder to find on smaller devices. Colors pop, games are plentiful, and parents can limit screen time.
