Can anyone think of 10 great websites for children?

Hot on the heels of our last post, about Simon Peyton Jones’ talk on “Teaching Creative Computer Science” being distributed in schools…

Now we are really pleased to announce that Sonia Livingstone’s TEDxExeter 2014 talk “How Children Engage with the Internet”, has been chosen to be one of the TEDx Talks Editor’s Picks for this week.

Sonia is a social psychologist, and researches how children engage with the media environment. She conducts surveys, interviews children, and observes how children engage with the media in homes and schools.

She says we need to think about the balance between the risks and the opportunities of technology, and we perhaps need to give more thought to developing the benefits.

Can anyone think of 10 great websites for children, as you could think of 10 great books for children?

Can we explore a journey of possibilities, rather than lock children into walled gardens?

Great questions for the media and entrepreneurs of all ages to explore.
