Exposing our children to new technology, and allowing them to become comfortable with using it at an early age gives them a powerful head start when it comes time for them to gain the proficiency with computers that will be practically essential in the future job market. For children that are, say, in elementary school, the best way to do this is with a flexible tablet computer that’s built just for them. Kids tablets need to be built to withstand plenty of knocks and bumps. The type and range of content you can access will be a big factor whether it’s being able to play Angry Birds Go or learning how to count to ten.

XO-infinity Tablet for Kids

The XO-infinity by One Education is a modular laptop-tablet hybrid every child can use. Modernising the first design of OLPC’s original XO laptop, the XO-infinity is crafted to be sturdy enough to last for many years.

Designed for use in schools and at home, the educational device is now easier to upgrade, repair and support. The XO-Infinity is a completely modular computing system, meaning the screen, battery, camera, wireless and processing cores can be swapped in and out like LEGO blocks. The modular design allows the kids tablet to be customized for different needs. First, young children can interact with a basic tablet, add a keyboard as they learn to write, and include a Wi-Fi chip when they’re ready to access the Internet.

The idea is to provide children with a tablet device that they can use throughout their school years by offering the ability to change out components as a student’s needs change. The laptop should be useful for ten years rather than outdated in two. One Education has spent years delivering technology to thousands of children and teachers, and have so far delivered over 50,000 XOs to teachers and children at over 300 schools.

One Education hopes to deliver XO Infinity units all over the world, as it has with other models. Watch out for news later in 2015 as pricing, specs, and launch dates emerge.

YouTube Kids App for Android

The sample home screen released from Google reveals that children can choose content from four categories: Shows, Music, Learning, and Explore. The Shows section will feature prominent kids media brands such as Sesame Street, Reading Rainbow, Thomas the Tank Engine, and the FuZees. Children can sing along with popular kid-friendly music hits in the Music section. The Learning and Explore sections enable children to search for content on subjects that interest them. The colorful design, large icons, and minimal text ensure that even a toddler will be able to navigate the app.

The YouTube Kids app is a response to the astronomical growth in family media watching on YouTube. The kids app is designed to give parents peace of mind in letting their children operate the app unsupervised. Unlike with YouTube, there is no possibility a child could stumble on inappropriate content while operating YouTube Kids. Users will only be able to view content through the app, there is no ability to upload videos or comments. If a child searches for an adult subject, the app will flash a screen that says “try searching for something else.” All ads and content will be tailored specifically for children.

Google is expected to launch a “YouTube for kids” designed for audiences under 13 years old with advanced filtering and privacy controls. In like manner, Vine has introduced a stripped-down version of its six-second video platform called “Vine for Kids” which curates a stream of age-appropriate content.

With the Launchpad acquisition, it seems Google wants to develop a video service that encourages kids to create and share videos as well as watch them. Launchpad is now shutting down ToonTube, with March 4th noted as the final date on which parents can download their kids’ videos.

Google’s acquisition of Launchpad Toys hints at ambitions to get more children creating and sharing videos rather than just watching them. Stay tuned for more amazing creativity tools for kids in 2015.
