paul rayner's curator insight, January 20, 2017 5:15 PM
Most Kiddle search results are illustrated with big thumbnails, which makes it easier to scan the results, differentiate between them, and click the most appropriate results to your query. Thumbnails serve as visual clues and are especially beneficial to kids as they don't read as fast as adults. 
Kiddle use a .co instead of a .com domain?: In Kiddle's case "co" stands for "children only".
Kiddle is powered by Google Safe Search but is not affiliated with Google Inc.

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter | General Tech Ed | Scoop.it

Writing used to be strictly an in-school activity. Now, kids do 40 percent of their writing outside of school. Called “life writing,” young adults’ social writing spans texts, tweets, social media, and blogs -- and all of it’s making kids more literate.

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, October 30, 2013 1:27 PM

"Life writing" should be given it's due.  While it is often short and sweet, it should count as one part of literacy development.  The English teacher in me what's to say it doesn't effect classroom writing assignments, but the techie within knows that any practice expressing your ideas to other counts.  Learning both styles will produce a competent, educated person.
