SAFE! i.e. NOT A SOCIAL NETWORK!
Cool Mom Tech explained it best: "Rest assured One Globe Kids is not a social network--there's no way to communicate through the app, but it will still feel that way to your kids, which they'll think is cool. So as a parent I can let my kids freely explore the globe and learn to appreciate and respect people who live differently than we do."
One Globe Kids is kidSafe certified. We follow the “Know What’s Inside” best practices for kid’s apps.
• Does NOT collect any personal information from users. Users can upload their own image, record their own voice (counting to 10 in Kirundi, for example!), and put themselves on the globe within the app, but this data stays on the device and is NEVER transmitted.

• Does NOT include any social media links or plug ins.
• Does NOT link to other websites.

Ratings and Reviews
The experience my students have had has given them the ability to see the world's children as similar to them and not so "strange".
It had been a wonderful addition to my social studies curriculum. It allows me to choose how much or how little time we spend in one culture.
I have used it consistently every week on World Wednesday. This app is worth the money.
I mean come on you only get two friends!!!!!😡😡 some things you can't do !! when these type of apps activities are free then I'll be interested until then I give it two stars because it stinks 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
I think this is really cool. I can learn how kids do things in other places. EB, 4th grader~
This is well one and very informative. It walks you through the day in the life of a child from another country and gives you just enough information to make you want to learn more. SF, primary principal ~
This user friendly app is a wonderful way to introduce children to other children and help them see how similar we all are. Students of all ages will really enjoy using it. I highly recommend it for teachers and parents. JSG, intermediate classroom teacher~
