PBS Kids has announced a cool new iOS app for parents today called PBS KIDS Super Vision, which gives you insight and controls over what videos your kids watch and what games they play on the pbskids.org website.
“In our research with parents, we know that they not only trust PBS KIDS to provide educational content, they are also hungry for more information about what their kids are learning from our shows and games, and they want to know how they can extend that learning beyond the screen,” said Sara DeWitt, Vice President of PBS KIDS Digital. “We developed PBS KIDS Super Vision to help address these needs.”
The simple-to-setup Super Vision app works something like a remote control over your kids’ computer screen time. You can monitor what they’re learning, what games they’ve been playing and how long they’ve been doing what. There’s even a remote shutdown option that immediately ends your kids’ play with a gentle time out splash page. It helps you get the kids away from the computer without you having to being the bad guy.
You can download the new PBS KIDS Super Vision app for iOS at the Apple App Store. For software that delivers PBS videos to a mobile device, check out the PBS KIDS Video app.
