Children's search engines; 13 reviewed and assessed Introduction When searching the internet - particularly with children in mind, it's important to ensure that you can feel safe with what they are doing, and where they are going. There are a fair number of child friendly search engines available - at least, that's what they call themselves, so I decided to take a look at them to see what I thought of them.

What I have discovered since exploring open source materials for children and teens is astonishing. The amount of open source materials is simply breathtaking.
