Userful announces the addition of Kids' Stations to DiscoverStation
February 15, 2007 - Calgary, AB - Userful Corporation is proud to announce the addition of Kids' Stations to its DiscoverStation lineup. Kids' Stations provide customizable access to a selection of age-appropriate edutainment programs, games, and access to online content via a white list of approved child-friendly Internet sites.
"Librarians have long recognized the need to deliver safe and secure computer access to children, but resources to deploy separate public computers for youth are often lacking,"; says Beverly McFarland, director of the Belen Public Library, New Mexico. "DiscoverStation enables Kids' Stations to be offered using the same computer hardware as regular adult stations. Parents frequently come into our library to use computers and DiscoverStation's Kids Stations mean the whole family can play or get their work done as needed."
Librarians can provide access to educational and entertaining programs from a list of over 30 included applications including gcompris and the KDE Edutainment suite. Great for the 2 through 10 age range, these applications move at the child's individual pace of learning while still stimulating active minds. Complimentary to the various educational programs, Kids' DiscoverStation also includes Userful's secure filtering software, allowing safe access to web-based games and educational web sites while librarians and parents can be confident that children will only have access to appropriate content.
