Een enthousiaste gebruiker van Glubble heeft al een screencast gemaakt die aardig aangeeft hoe Glubble werkt.
Een belangrijke vraag is natuurlijk “Zetten we niet teveel dicht voor kinderen en kunnen ze nog wel zelf ontdekken? Gelukkig wordt deze vraag behandeld in de FAQ op de Glubble website.

Isn’t this a poor experience for children? Aren’t we giving them half the net?
That is more a “point of view” question. With the power of collaboration of parents and caregivers working together it is likely that a large , approved and curated collection of suitable content will emerge. A great analogy of this is a public library. The librarians have spent a lot of time and effort in creating a collection free of harmful/trivial material. This is a collection that you would be happy letting your child freely wander amongst. We hope that by enabling motivated parents to “litter pick” the web we can create peer recommended collections that form a useful resource for parents and an enjoyable environment for discovery for children.

Zeker in de gaten houden! Ziet er erg goed uit allemaal. Ik ben nog geen ‘ouder’ maar zie zeker het nut in van deze app!
