So often you can feel you spend half your life trying to get kids off screens. But we’ve discovered a website that enables kids to watch but also learn! The Kids Should See This is an award-winning collection of over 4,500 kid-friendly videos, curated for teachers and parents who want to share smarter, more meaningful media in the classroom and at home.
TKSST is a rare, award-winning collection of videos that aims to mix the BBC, PBS, NPR, and only the kindest corners of Reddit. It celebrates curiosity, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, kindness, and wonder! And it’s free for everyone.
It serves up STEAM, history, and culture-focused content from museums, organisations, artists, creators, and educators from around the web. What’s great is that it feels like good screen time. Videos are pre-screened, smart, and engaging allowing kids to discover new wonders that can start conversations, spark questions, and can inspire offline exploration for all ages.
The team at TKSST have spent thousands of hours sifting through YouTube and Vimeo to build this collection. It’s added to every week and encouraged into schools and to educators.
