STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GroupBuyCenter LLC recently released QuizMyTween for iPhone® and iPad®. QuizMyTween is an app to help parents have a conversation with their child about online safety. It has a set of quizzes based on real-life scenarios that will assess a child's awareness of online safety issues. It provides a score focused on key categories of risks that parents can use to have an informed conversation on safety with their child.
According to a recent Pew Research survey on Teens and Technology, over 78% of American teens have their own cellphone. The unprecedented level of access to the Internet and other digital media creates a significant challenge for parents concerned about their child's safety but are still interested in leveraging the benefits of these tools for their child's benefit.
Whilst the traditional response is to block a child's access to these tools, as most parents will attest, controlling the internet will not necessarily keep their child safe. QuizMyTween provides contextual tips on dealing with safety issues and helps parents have an informed conversation with their child on the roles and responsibilities of being a good digital citizen.
The quizzes are based on a series of learning objectives designed to cover key risks such as cyberbullying, online predators, identity theft and risks associated with managing a child's reputation online on social media and other digital platforms. The QuizMyTween concept was recently awarded the 2014 reSET Social Impact Award as part of Connecticut's first EDU Startup Weekend in recognition of its efforts to address a social need.
