KidKam on the Road: Making PTO Connections

Parent Teacher groups such as PTAs and PTOs are considered the heartbeat of every school. They provide an opportunity for parents to become more invested in their child’s education, while raising funds for important resources for schools. Starting this fall, KidKam’s School Reinvestment Program is a new fundraising opportunity that allows  PTA/PTOs to capture 25% of the subscription revenue for parents from their school that chose KidKam as their safe video streaming service.  

KidKam in the News: June 2015 Updates

A lot of buzz is being generated as parents and teachers are trusting KidKam.com in their classrooms and homes for video streaming. To help spread the word,  KidKam had its first official press release published on June 4th thanks to PRweb.com. The article features commentary from its founders highlighting KidKam's mission for being a safe online site for kids. It notates KidKam's advanced parental controls and discusses the importance of the screening process that makes KidKam unique. The full press release can be read here:

In the past year, other apps and sites have launched claiming to offer kid-friendly videos at the touch of a button. Take the YouTube Kids app, for example. By deleting offensive comment boards and creating an easy-to-use platform for kids, the app does seem ideal for responsible parents who want to keep their child safe online. With a timer, sound settings, and other parental controls, a  parent can seemingly give their child an iPad let them “view away” since all the content has been filtered through a complex computer algorithm.
