Kid Friendly Digital Activities Part 5

Kid Friendly Digital Activities Part 5

The Last of the series!

YouTube Collection

The Mighty Mommy has a couple of suggestions for Youtube, see her explanations below.

YouTube is one of the hottest “go to” places on the internet. The topics are endless and when monitored can be safe and entertaining for children of all ages.

NeoK12 is a fantastic collection of videos, arranged by subject, that have been individually reviewed by K-12 teachers. There are also quizzes, games and puzzles as well as a cool presentation creator that helps students create their own presentations within the site. Also cool is the How it Works section.

NeoK12 is a really great site with lots of possibilities.

Some other possibilities include

  • Khan Academy youtube videos don’t tend to talk down to kids, with selections including macroeconomics, basic counting, cryptography, grammar, trigonometry, chemistry; for all ages, including the adult learners in your family!
  • Edudemic offers videos for educators, evidence answering whether students should take notes on a computer and other things for educators.
  • RefSeek is an aggregate of various online videos which you may find interesting, since I won’t list everything
  • CosmoLearning says it is a “free educationa website for students and teachers.”  Apparently it offers learning in Audiology, Blockchain, Civil Engineering, Dentistry (really?)
  • Coursera “provides universal access to the world’s best education, partnering with top universities and organizations to offer courses online.”  This is not a free course, with prices about 29$ to 99$, and courses in Data Science, Learning how to learn, and other adult-oriented classes.  An advanced child may find value in college-level learning.
  • WatchKnowLearn has a lot of educational offerings.  You can search their catalog easier by filtering for appropriate age groups, from 3 years to 18 years.  Their classes include Life Skills, Philosophy and Religion, Hobbies and Crafts, Social Studies, History, Science.  The whole lot.  I’m gonna be right back, I have to watch a few of them myself!
  • Quartz lists and describes several cool video learning websites, including Netflix Academy, The Magic School Bus 360; and video suggestions in Literature, US History, World History.
  • And, last but not least, Mighty Mommy includes quick and dirty tips on how to protect your grandchildren as they explore technology
