iPad Apps in Maker Studio | YouTube Kids

The official YouTube Kids app is designed for curious little minds to dive into a world of discovery, learning and entertainment. This is a delightfully simple (and free!) app, where kids can discover videos, channels and playlists they love.

We work hard to offer a safer YouTube experience, but no automated system is perfect. If you ever find a video you’re concerned about, please flag it. This helps make YouTube Kids better for everyone. For more important notes about the app, please see below.

DESIGNED FOR KIDS
To make exploration easy, videos in the app are split into four categories: Shows, Music, Learning and Explore. We also took out the complicated stuff to make an app even little ones can navigate -- that means big buttons, easy scrolling, and instant full-screen. And when the whole family wants to enjoy their favorite videos together, everyone can watch on the big screen with Chromecast, Apple TV, game consoles, or smart TVs.

VIDEOS KIDS WILL LOVE
Kids can enjoy favorites like Sesame Street, Thomas & Friends and Talking Tom, online hits like Mother Goose Club, TuTiTu and Stampylonghead, plus anything else they’re into -- sports, animals, gaming, crafts and more.

GROWN-UPS ARE IN CONTROL
We know that every family is different, so we’ve included features that let grown-ups tailor the YouTube Kids experience to their family’s needs. Settings are found behind a grown-ups-only lock where you can turn off search for a more restricted experience or set a built-in timer to let kids know when it’s time to stop watching so you don’t have to.

For more information about the app and settings, please read our Parental Guide.

IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT THE APP

  • Parental setup is needed to ensure the best experience possible for your child.
  • YouTube Kids contains paid ads in order to offer the app for free. Your child may also see videos with commercial content from YouTube creators that are not paid ads. For more information, please check out our Parental Guide.
  • Videos in the app are selected by our automated systems. Please note, no system is perfect, and it is possible that your child may find something you don’t want them to watch. If your child finds a video that you feel is inappropriate, please flag the video and it will be reviewed as soon as possible.
  • You can restrict your child’s experience by turning search off in the set-up flow or by accessing the settings behind the “grown-ups only” lock. This means your child can’t search for content, which reduces the chances that they will encounter a video you don’t want them to watch.
  • Whether search is on or off, the app will recommend videos selected by our automated systems from the broad set of videos accessible in YouTube Kids.

iPad Apps in Maker Studio | The Foos Coding 5+ | Make games! Kids learn programming logic. Free

Welcome to The Foos, the #1 global platform for making your own games and learning to code. Join millions of players from 172 countries!

*** 2016 KAPi Awards – Best App or Product for Younger Children***
*** 2015 Parents’ Choice — Gold Medal ***
*** 2015 USA Today’s — Best Pick ***
*** 2015 Tillywig Toy Awards - Brain Child ***
*** Apple Editor’s Choice & Top Educational App ***

We’ve teamed up with Princeton and Harvey Mudd University professors to turn programming into play. Kids learn to code via a series of exciting adventures. Our word-free interface allows anyone, anywhere to play. They’ll track down a sneaky donut thief, rescue puppies lost in space and serve up gourmet meals while mastering core computer science concepts.

The Foos: Over 40 puzzle levels and 3 unique creative play areas for storytelling and animation.

Our creative space Foo Studio allows kids to put programming concepts to work by making video games and programming interactive stories. Creations can then be shared with a global community of Foo coders.

To be successful, kids must:

  • determine the actions needed to solve each Foo’s problem
  • order actions in a logical sequence
  • recognize patterns
  • use those patterns to make their code more efficient
  • test solutions
  • learn from tests and try revised solutions

The Foos is an introduction for those who have no experience programming and is all-ages friendly! That means anyone from 5 to 105 can play, have fun and learn real programming logic.

"The Foos is easy to learn, full of playful characters and it's easy to experiment."
-Children's Technology Review

"Most appealing to me as a parent was seeing how my children enjoyed working together on the puzzles. Even my teenager was completely engaged!"
-Parents' Choice Awards


The Foos was originally created for The 'Hour of Code', a global initiative from Code.org [code.org] and Computer Science Education Week [csedweek.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.

Parents and teachers are using The Foos first when introducing their kids and students to programming and computer science. Parents can follow codeSpark on Facebook for unplugged coding activities.

There are NO in-app purchases in The Foos.


Is The Foos curriculum standards based?
YES! The Foos gameplay is based on curriculum from MIT and Exploring Computer Science at UCLA. Core concepts include: Pattern recognition, problem solving, sequencing, spatial visualization, algorithmic thinking, debugging, loops and conditionals. Kids also become more persistent and creative in their pursuit of solutions.

Who are The Foos?
The Foos are funny, happy creatures that inspire kids to create and collaborate through programming. Coding with The Foos requires visual, intuitive and imaginative input that builds critical computational thinking skills for future success.

The Foos app is inspired by visual programming languages such as Scratch from MIT, Alice from CMU and other ‘beginner’ programming languages like Logo, SmallTalk, and Squeak.

What is codeSpark?
codeSpark is delivering computer science education to kids in over 150 countries by turning programming into play. The company was founded when our CEO wanted to introduce his daughters to coding and couldn’t find any resources that were girl-friendly ways to learn the ABC's of computer science.

iPad Apps in Maker Studio | ScratchJr

With ScratchJr, young children (ages 5-7) learn important new skills as they program their own interactive stories and games.

By snapping together graphical programming blocks, children can make characters move, jump, dance, and sing.

ScratchJr was inspired by the popular Scratch programming language (http://scratch.mit.edu), used by millions of people (ages 8 and up) around the world. The ScratchJr interface and programming language were redesigned to make them appropriate for younger children’s cognitive, personal, social, and emotional development.

ScratchJr is a collaboration between the Lifelong Kindergarten research group at the MIT Media Lab, the Developmental Technologies research group at Tufts University, and the Playful Invention Company. The ScratchJr project has received generous financial support from the National Science Foundation (NSF DRL-1118664), Scratch Foundation, LEGO Foundation, and British Telecommunications.

TESTIMONIALS:

"What a great tool! It’s sleek, intuitive, and easy. Being able to design a fixed layout picture book right on the iPad makes total sense. Highly recommended."

  • Liz Castro, Author of ‘EPUB Straight to the Point: Creating ebooks for the Apple iPad and other ereaders’

"The app is super intuitive! I was working on a book for my 7 year old niece (who lives in Brazil) in no time. It took me about 30 minutes to put together a book for her, publish in iBooks and email the ePub file to my brother…to open it up on his iPad…. for my niece to read it."

  • Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano, langwitches.org

"We are very excited about Book Creator... off to layout a kids picture book, then maybe mom’s recipes."
