How to Prevent iOS Apps from Accessing the Internet [Video]

A number of apps that your kids are using have web browsers hidden in them. They can use those browsers to get access to the entire Internet. Here’s how to prevent that from happening.

Along with parental controls it’s a good idea to use a third-party browser like Covenant Eyes or X3Watch.

Sign up for Covenant Eyes and and use the promo code “wiredhs” when registering. You’ll get a 30-day free trial and help support The Wired Homeschool.

2015 Mobile Learning trends [Infographic]

I came across this great infographic today and thought I’d share it with you.

I’m on board with just about everything here. In fact, I predicted some of these trends last year.

The one thing I’m unsure of is wearable tech. Right now it’s priced too high. I think we’ll need to see a drop in the price of wearable tech before it becomes something homeschoolers will embrace.

Which of these trends are you excited to implement in your homeschooling?

Free Comic Book Day is this weekend and I still have a sore throat. I didn’t want to go another week without a podcast so I decided to re-release this interview with Ben Avery about using comics and graphic novels in homeschooling.
