Is It Any Good?

Our review:

WatchKnow, as in "You watch, you know," is an attractively designed wiki holding thousands of educational videos and other media for kids. Everything is conveniently sorted into categories and subcategories. (For instance, history breaks out into ancient history, Asian history, world history, and so on.) Registered users can edit the categories and video descriptions to improve the site. The content is high quality and far-ranging, explaining just about every topic kids are taught in school and more. Particularly helpful is the site's two-way age slider, which parents can use to zero in on the best videos for the child's level of maturity, say everything geared for between ages 10 and 13. Not everything is rated, and some videos, such as the ones we ran across on weightlifting, are skewed more for adults. But it's all clean and overall a terrific educational resource.

Online interaction: Registered users can leave comments and join a mailing list that serves as a discussion forum. When we visited the site was still so new that there were very few comments left after the videos.

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.
