The Internet’s New Kid-Safe ZoneKids.us designations offer quality and decency
Sooner or later, nearly every parent wishes for a magic wand that will protect young children from things that aren’t good for them. That’s especially true on the Internet where nothing but a mouse click separates even the youngest children from pornography, gambling, and other adult vices. (read the story...)

A New Quest Begins in Queens
ThinkQuest is getting students thinking. They’re thinking about alcohol abuse, the Civil War, lasers, bridges, penguins, U.S. Presidents, and families; and they’re putting these thoughts into websites for the entire world to see. (read the story...)

Healthy (Computer) Habits for Young Bodies
Looking for your kids? If you have a computer, they’re likely to be found hunched over the keyboard and squinting at the screen while they surf the Internet, play games and Instant Message friends. The value of surfing, gaming and IMing is up for discussion, but the hunching and staring are bad habits with lifelong consequences. (read the story...)

A PC for Jr.?
Does a child need his or her own computer? That's a question facing many parents today. Just a few years ago, even the most high-tech of families had only one personal computer at home. But today, the family PC is one very busy machine. It's a workstation, a communication tool, a game console and increasingly, a regular part of schoolwork. That's leading many families to consider purchasing a desktop expressly for their child's use. But making a smart tech purchase for your child isn't always an easy task. Here's a quick parent's guide to buying a PC for JR: (read the story...)

The “Talkie” of the Town
Testing…one…two…three. Kids can experiment with the magic of the greatest symphony in their lives — their own voices — at The Museum of Sound Recording at RKO Keith’s (MOSR) in Richmond Hill. The Museum launches its historic collection of sound technology with a grand opening on June 7. (read the story...)

FTC Calls Turtle to Guard Duty“Dewie the Turtle” Appointed Internet Security Mascot
The current national byword, as if anyone really needs to be reminded, is security. And with the Internet's ever-expanding role as a common household tool, the need to protect users from hackers — and children from some of the nastier eccentricities of adulthood — continues to stimulate new government initiatives and resources.

New Website Unites Kids with Community Hundreds of volunteer opportunities available in Queens
When you're genuinely interested in doing something, turning up a good resource is just about as exciting as finding money. Young people with a predilection for doing volunteer work now have a resource to go to that's about as hard to locate as their computer. Kids for Community (www.kidsforcommunity.org) is a veritable Sierra Madre for unearthing volunteer opportunities for kids. It's a site where opportunities just keep turning up. And up. And up.

Helping Children Find When They Search
The good news: the answer to every question your child will ever ask is available on the World Wide Web. The bad news: it may take hours or even days to locate it. (read the story...)

Festivities in Miniature
Whether it is the romance of travel or the fascination with technology, traditional visions of the December holidays would hardly be complete without images of a miniature train creeping around the Christmas tree or of children sprawled on the floor lost in an imaginary journey. (read the story...)

Making Holiday Memories, Digitally
In most families, taking photos at the holidays is as much a tradition as baking and wrapping packages. Often, however, roles of festive film are developed mid-January and the prints disappear into albums or, more likely, shoeboxes and desk drawers. Digital cameras are changing all that. By offering instant, inexpensive images, these cameras are transforming the way families think about and enjoy the pictures they take. (read the story...)

Cut, Paste — and hand it in-STEALING FROM THE WEBI
The advent of personal computers and the Internet have made the writing of papers and doing research much simpler for students. The Internet offers a wealth of free information, there for the taking. Unfortunately, this same technology can also facilitate plagiarism, whether unintentional or deliberate. (read the story...)

Moving Image: An eye to many screens
Films enjoy — or suffer from — a distinction no other technology or art does: The idea that audiences understand them inside out. Seeing moving images as frequently as we do in movie theaters, on television, through video games and through our computers, we've come to feel something like homegrown experts. As media critics frequently point out, moving images are everywhere, and their effect, as the pictures from September 11 recently reminded us, are as potent as ever. (read the story...)
