Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Instructables is a slick DIY and how-to share site intended for adults but with lots of useful and offbeat ideas and projects tweens and teens could do with supervision. If kids stick entirely to the Instructables listed in categories, they will avoid most sophisticated content (“How to Make an Arc Welder” or “How to Put on a Condom”). To create a brand new Instructable, users must register with username, email, and password, or via Facebook. To keep the app from collecting usage statistics users can uncheck a box in the About section.

Instructables is a Lifestyle app that is designed for those 17.  The app has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 and a learning rating of 4 out of 5.

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

With a wide range of interesting projects, the app is sure to engage. Graphics and design are top notch, and plentiful photos enhance the experience greatly. Contests add interest.

The Support Level for Instructables is about a 4 out of 5.

Links to reference and background info would improve learning significantly.
