Kideos – Kid Friendly Video Site

Kideos is a great site for kids to safely watch videos online. Each video on Kideos has been screened by their “Video Advisory Council” before it makes it onto the site. The Kideos goal is to empower parents to feel comfortable allowing their child to spend time on Kideos, while also making sure children have a thoroughly entertaining experience.

The site is indexed by age groups which makes it easy for kids to search for videos. A good portion of the videos on Kideos are YouTube-based, so if your district has a blocking policy, you’ll need to look elsewhere (or use 3outube to download any YouTube video).

Uses in the Classroom

Depending on how you want to use Kideos in your classroom, be advised that a lot of the videos on the site are for general entertainment, and are not necessarily academic. However, there are some great channels within Kideos like Educational Videos, National Geographic, Space, Ocean, and more that would be perfect to send your students off to view and learn.
