What I’ve learned is that kids DO enjoy great content. Young minds thrive on stimulation. But fascinating educational content is rarely what video platforms’ algorithms push to their feeds. They are shown increasingly attention-grabbing videos —often content that’s not just useless but inappropriate for kids.
But how to find great content?
Conceivably, you could take it upon yourself to look for it as the parent. To find, validate and check suitability for age, safety and commercial upselling—avoiding manipulative influencers—would take you hours each week!
Not many parents could sustain that.
With Learning Break, in a few seconds you can find great content that fits your criteria AND your kid’s interest. Reviewed for parents, by parents.
Learning Break connects parents with their kids
I created Learning Break to help parents find the most engaging educational videos on the Internet for kids aged 7 to 13. Our quick, to-the-point reviews save you time by telling you what a video is about, and rating it on factors that matter most.
You can quickly, easily evaluate and share content with your kids.
Share EDU-TAINING Videos with Your Kids. It’s free to use.
As parents, we’re all aware that screen addiction is a serious problem. And yet, screens are essential to communicating, learning, research and connecting. While there is no getting entirely away from them, most kids spend far more time than necessary on digital devices.
That’s why an important focus of Learning Break is to help nudge kids offline. We rate videos on their ability to encourage hands-on activities that kids do in the real world. Plus we tell you what materials are needed and the difficulty of experiments—helping you set your kid up for success!
In our video reviews, we show you relevant sample clips of every video, to give you a quick look at quality and style.
We tell you everything important in under a minute, followed by a more detailed breakdown—only if you’re interested. Your time is precious, and Learning Break helps you lead with knowledge!
We give each video a letter grade for overall value, plus:
• The viewer’s ideal age
• The topic (Science, Math, Language and more)
• Whether the video nudges kids offline
• A summary of key take-aways for the viewer
• Script Quality
• Imparts Knowledge
