Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that PBS KIDS Super Vision links a parent’s mobile device to the PBS KIDS website so parents can use their “super vision” for remote supervision. The iOS app is available for iPhone but can be used on an iPad as well. Parents enter a unique code from the PBS KIDS website on their device and then can monitor in real time what their kids are playing or watching on the site. They can get reports of skills kids are learning and how long they spend on different activities as well as suggestions for other games, shows, or apps kids might like and off-screen activities to enhance learning. Parents also can set a timer to turn off the site automatically. PBS KIDS Super Vision’s reporting isn’t fully accurate in some areas, and it doesn’t work when kids are playing on the site through a tablet or phone.

PBS KIDS Super Vision is a Education app that is designed for those 3.  The app has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 and a learning rating of 3 out of 5.

PBS KIDS Super Vision is available for Free On The Following Devices:

iPod Touch


Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

The parent-facing app is information-based and not geared toward kids. Kids will be engaged in the online games they play and videos they watch.

The Support Level for PBS KIDS Super Vision is about a 3 out of 5.

The data-driven tool tracks for parents what kids are doing on the PBS KIDS website and the skills covered. Ideas for activities to do off-screen extend learning. Step-by-step instructions guide parents through connecting their device to the website.
