As someone who's read a bit in cognitive neuroscience and been to a few conferences, I have absolutely no idea what "creating new and different neurological structures in children's brains"
Maybe a better example: I think kids should learn how to ride mountain bikes. I don't think two-year olds should learn how to ride mountain bikes.
Nice anecdote. One of my own: a few decades ago people were worrying about DDT. They were right.
The brain's certainly rather plastic, especially at a young age, but I don't think using an iPad is going to give a child new thalamic nuclei, or what have you.
