What's going to be in this year? From milk sharing to educational iPad apps, we take a look back at the biggest parenting and family stories of the last year to predict 12 trends that will be hot in 2011.
The iPad Gets Educational
With the launch of the iPad tablet in April 2010, companies rushed to create cool apps for it. Already a fun tool for distracting kids during long car rides, the iPad will go educational in 2011. "I see the continued development of age-appropriate apps for kids," says Leticia Barr, a technology expert who writes the Tech Savvy Mama blog. "Trusted names with great reputations for providing educational content, like PBS Kids and Scholastic, will keep developing high-quality mobile content to enhance learning on the go."
