Safe Web Browsing For Kids

Dogpile and Yahooligans are two kid safe web search sites that I have stumbled upon through reading a post over on Danni’s blog. They say that hindsight is 20/20 and that sounds about right in this case. For those following along at home you may remember me posting some tips from a semi disastrous guided Google search lesson(s) I ran with year 5 students as part of a history lesson and I mentioned how some searches result in inappropriate images (especially!). Well these would have helped out enormously in the flow of those particular lessons, eliminating the hands shooting up from students who weren’t finding the images they had planned during a search. I’m being a little bit dramatic, there wasn’t anything that bad more confusion was the case.
