As a tech blogger and parent, I’m very aware of how important it is to be knowledgeable about kids and digital media.
This post is sponsored by SmartFeed.
There are so many wonderful educational and fun sites out there for kids but sometimes it’s difficult to find them among all the things we don’t want kids to see. That’s why I’m excited about this sponsored post about SmartFeed.
The goal of SmartFeed is to feed kids positive, engaging, healthy content whether it’s online books, apps, games, movies, and more. It is a platform where you set up accounts for your kids and enter in info like gender, grade level, and then you can select categories like interests, curriculum, situation, ratings, filters and more.
Here’s a look at some of the selections:
- Gender Sterotyping
- …and much more
You can then select which devices you want content for like iPad, iPhone, Xfinity, Netflix, and Pandora.
Also you can use slider bars to set different levels for values for things like anti-bullying, independence, adventure, giving back, creativity, and more. There are slider bars for curriculum subjects and interests as well.
In SmartFeed you can also set usage limits including on and off times as well as duration. Very handy for parents concerned about the amount of screen time their children are getting. There is also the option to award bonus time.
You can also turn off in app purchases which is great. Many parents aren’t quite sure how to do this and I love how easy SmartFeed makes it. We actually know a few adults who have accidentally made in app purchases racking up hundreds of dollars in charges. If it’s that easy for adults to do, kids can fall for this too. That’s why I love that SmartFeed offers this option.
Once the accounts are set up, families and children can browse all the suggestions for books, apps, movies, and games. As a parent it’s wonderful to know that your child is seeing positive and healthy content and not to have to worry about what they might run across.
