ScuttlePad

ScuttlePad.png

Publisher's Documentation:

ScuttlePad is a safe place for 6‐11 year olds to interact online and connect with their friends. With ScuttlePad, children have fun updating their status and making comments by choosing and combining words to build sentences, all while learning online safety fundamentals.

Many parents, including those familiar with social networking and those new to finding friends online, can be unaware that their kids are experimenting on platforms like Facebook and Twitter, which are not age appropriate.

ScuttlePad’s approach comes from the belief that guided communication helps kids learn how to benefit from and safely interact with an online community. Just as we teach kids how to cross the street safely, we must also help them understand how social networks work and how to be safe in them. Unlike networks for adults, at ScuttlePad kids can’t get into trouble by sharing too much or inappropriate information, or get approached by adult strangers.
