i-Kids safety phone

i-kids have created a low radiation mobile phone for pre-teens backed by children’s charity Kidscape.

Parents can access a map online and on their mobile, showing the tracked position of the i-kids phone, which is located by satellite every 10 minutes. Parents can also be alerted by text if the i-kids phone travels outside a specified area.

Kent Local Authority Digital Curriculum Team, will hopefully be trialing a few of these phones next term so we will keep you updated on the evaluations.

Meanwhile, has anyone’s child already got one of these phones? What are your thoughts on this phone?
