Access through WizeNoze
Children (6-18) are online more than ever, thanks to a significant rise in smartphone and tablet use. However, they experience the following three problems with major search engines, such as Google and Bing:
- Search engines offer an overload of information
- It’s hard to decide which results are relevant, appropriate and reliable
- Information is often too difficult to read and understand
Listen to Hanna Jochmann from Wizenoze addressing these issues in her TED talk.
WizeNoze has the solution!
WizeNoze is the first content collection in the world to take into account users’ reading and comprehension levels. WizeNoze.com assists children from 6 to 18 years old in formulating their search queries and offers them only appropriate and reliable resources. Adults with low literacy skills and second language learners can also benefit from this content collection.
WizeNoze provides access to hundreds of thousands of web pages. WizeNoze.com (JouwZoekmachine.nl for Dutch users) is currently available in 80% of Dutch primary schools and thousands of children use it on a daily basis. The press is also enthusiastic about our child-friendly search engine.
