Earlier today, my friends as PBS KIDS launched a revolutionary, first-of-it’s-kind App that gives parents a “super power” – the power to see what their kids are watching, learning and playing on pbskids.org, and to help parents guide and maximize their kids’ PBS KIDS screen time. Get ready for imitators, because this is pretty cool…
With the PBS KIDS Super Vision App, now available on iPhone and iPod Touch, parents enter a simple code on their mobile device to start receiving:
- Real-time information on what their child is playing, watching and learning on pbskids.org;
- The ability to remotely set a Play Timer from their mobile device that will put pbskids.org to sleep on their child’s screen, easing the transition from playing online to another activity, such as dinner time or bed time;
- Related activities that they can do with their child off-screen to extend the fun and learning goals of the games or videos their child plays on pbskids.org;
- An Activity Summary to view the top educational skills, shows, videos and games their child used on pbskids.org.
