"kidthing" Interview On No Limits to Learning Live

One of my most popular posts - still ranking as the most read, is the post on kidthing and the free download of their virtual edition of The Lorax. The site is a wonderful resource for students with print disabilities. For about $3.99 to $7.99, cheaper than most books at the store, you can have in a permanent archive, books that are narrated, animated and turn pages with the click of a mouse. There are games as well under topics that work like the concentration matching pairs activity. More games are in a demo format soon to be available in full versions.
You download a free player that becomes an application on your computer. You log in and then access your library of games, videos, books, pictures, etc. The company is striving to offer free downloads every month for limited times of various titles.

CEO and Founder, Larry Hitchcock, will be my guest tomorrow, May 29, at 10:30 a.m. Pacific to share about this innovative new site. In the works is a safe web 2.0 style social connecting area where kids can have a friend list, share favorites, etc. This area is still in development. It will be interesting to hear his comments on this idea for small children. We will also discuss the features of the site and assistive technology applications.

You can go to the segment info here at blog talk radio: "It's a Kid Thing: The New Children's Web 2.0 for Learning Site" The archive of the show will be here on my blog on the sidebar through the Blog Talk Radio player.

All the best to you!
