As students continue to spend more time at home amid the pandemic, Google on Monday unveiled a new hub for children’s content on tablets.
The hub, called Kids Space, will take children to curated apps, videos and books. The apps will be certified with a “teacher approved” badge, a program Google launched in April. The content is rated by teachers who work with Google to pick the apps, based on criteria including age-appropriateness, learning and positive messages. The videos will come from YouTube Kids, the child-friendly version of Google’s massive video site. The search giant said it worked with publishers to provide a library of more than 400 free books.
The hub, meant for kids under 9 years old, will only be available for tablets
