Team Bodoques (3) – Spain/Italy – Filtering + analytics of children behaviours – Winner 1st Prize

Date: June 14, 2012 Categories: Safety Track Comments: No Comments Share:

The Project

Our team proposes a playful application aimed at increasing children and youth safety on the Web respecting their independence. It consists on two parts: a client part where we provide an extension for browsers to aid children in web browsing, and a server part that helps to incentive some children behavior.
The client allows the child to freely browse through the internet with restriction apart from a time limit. According to the decision of the parents or teachers, the time limit may pass faster or slower depending on the website. Moreover, children can monitor the remaining time limit as well as get statistics about their past behavior, in order to consciously take decisions about their behavior. The look and feel of these suggestions is specially designed for children.
The server provides a dashboard where teachers can specify which sites they incentive or disincentive, but provides no way to interfere with the you’s privacy.
By enforcing rules but mitigating the intrusion of parents and teachers in the child’s life, eyeTime teaches to the children the importance of decisions and at the same time makes them responsible of their own safety when browsing the Internet.
