Who Uses Tablets the Most? The Surprising Answer

Who uses tablets the most?  You may be surprised by the answer.

A recent report says the biggest users are not teens...but kids.













The reason?  Think about it.  Parents of young children are aware of the multitude e-books, games, and learning apps that are available for tablets.

Since kids age 2 to 5 spend more time at home with their parents, it makes sense that parents would be using tablets to entertain and teach their kids through this avenue.

And they are easy to use on the go as well.  Think about how many times you have seen younger children with tablets in the waiting room at a doctor's office or in the backseat of a car.

Elementary kids?  Studies show they are not only using tablets for entertainment, but for schoolwork as well.  56% of elementary kids who have tablets report using them for schoolwork.

These studies reveal an incredible opportunity for the church to reach and disciple kids for Christ through apps, games, and online discipleship tools designed for tablets. 

There are a few groups who are tapping into this, but we are just scratching the service.  My prayer is that God will raise up creative and innovative leaders in this area who can develop these tools.

Who do you know that is developing apps and tools for tablets with the goal of reaching and discipling kids?  

What apps and tools are out there already that we can help promote?
