Is It Any Good?

SCOOP.IT makes it easy for users to compile news and stay current on specific topics by following what other users post. Essentially, you create a constantly updated online informational source on a subject. To help, the site provides content suggestions from reputable outlets like Google News and ones that contain a mix of quality and questionable information, like YouTube. Most of the site content is news-related, yet kids may come across dubious, unrelated items. But Scoop.it has several selling points: It's fairly easy to use, encourages kids to explore topics, and provides them with a chance to share their opinion and communicate with other users. You may, however, want to supervise your child's time on the site and work together on posts to ensure your child has a safe, effective learning experience.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
