Helping Children Find What They Want on the Internet

As featured in The New York Times, kids have a hard time using search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Wikipedia. According to Michael H. Levine, executive director of the Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop, a nonprofit research center in New York focused on digital education for children, it's because search engines are designed for adults.

Now that the problem has been recognized, many search engines, like Google and Bing, have begun to address it. If they're successful, your youngster should find it easier in the not-so-distant future to search out answers to anything their teachers can dream up.
