PBS KIDS Super Vision App Enables Parents to See What Their Kids Are Watching, Playing and Learning
A free app for parents that gives them the "super power" of engaging with their kid's digital experience like never before.
The PBS KIDS Super Vision App is now available on iPhone and iPod touch.
PBS KIDS has launched a new, free app designed specifically for parents that will give them the “super power” to engage with their kids in the digital medium as never before: PBS KIDS Super Vision. The new app is a first-of-its-kind tool that parents can access conveniently from their mobile phones anytime, anywhere, to see what their kids are watching, playing and learning on pbskids.org, and help them make the most of their children’s PBS KIDS screen time. Now available on iPhone and iPod touch, PBS KIDS Super Vision offers a connected web experience that enables parents to see remotely what their kids are learning in PBS KIDS games and videos, help manage their kids’ time on pbskids.org and build on that learning away from the screen through real-time updates, educational tips and activity ideas that are related to their children’s interests.
With the PBS KIDS Super Vision App, 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 from PBS Parents 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
