YouTube may be a treasure trove of educational videos to keep the little ones entertained while learning, but the non-interactive element of YouTube videos makes it hard to figure out if the kids are really gaining knowledge from what they are watching. To solve this dilemma, Portugal-based edtech startup, Magikbee, has launched kiddZtube. This video-quiz app features a wide variety of YouTube videos that have been chosen and curated by teachers, ensuring all the content is both educational and safe for preschoolers. The teachers have made the videos more interactive for children by adding questions that allow them to learn different topics including spelling, colours, emotions and more. Parents can keep track of their child’s progress too, as well as set the amount of time their child will be able to use the app.
