creates a parent-controlled Internet browser and community suite of client-server applications and software components (email, chat) used to assemble an educational, safe and secure environment for children to navigate the Internet, send and receive email, and participate in chat room discussions without fear of predators making contact with them.
The parent-controlled suite of Internet applications include: Kid Safe Web browsers, "talking" email, "talking" chat and, in the near future, "talking" instant messaging in addition to other new features. CEN's product suite enables a child to access only the best, kid-safe websites that are provided as an initial "include list", which can be edited by parents or guardians. In addition to promoting and distributing its own proprietary brands, CEN establishes strategic relationships with well-known brands, creating branded "browser skins" that appeal to children while satisfying parental concerns associated with children using the Internet.
Include List Protection
For the younger children (4-12) we have created a browser which allows them to only surf pre-approved websites deemed appropriate by teachers, staff members and parents using our content policy.
Filtered Internet Protection
For the older children (13-18) we have filters that block all forms of inappropriate content on the Internet.
Spam Free Email
Children can only send and receive email from PARENT APPROVED friends and relatives. They will NEVER receive spam or inappropriate email!
Our proprietary language filters help prevent children from typing bad words in our closed chat rooms. Our animated characters will politely ask the child to rewrite his/her message!
Personal Information Filters
Our proprietary personal information filters help prevent children from giving out personal information, such as their phone number, name, address and other personal information in our closed chat rooms, thus teaching children safe Internet etiquette.
This is our most significant and distinguishing feature. With desktop lockdown turned on, children can only surf the Internet with our safe, closed community browsers. With all other ISP’s parental controls, (like AOL) the children can just minimize the ISP browser and then surf in a completely unprotected Internet!
Complete Parental Control
With our web based administration, parents can control every feature of this superior technology. It is easy to use and every parent can achieve piece of mind knowing their children are in a protected Internet environment.
Talking Animated Characters
With this unique feature, our animated characters will appear on the computer screen and actually talk to your children, read their emails to them and speak the names of the buttons on the browser interface, thus teaching even the youngest children how to properly use the Internet.
We actually allow YOU to program what our animated character says to your children with our “Encouraging Words Feature” while they surf the Internet. This is a very powerful feature used to communicate educational values programmed by the parent.
You can also program our animated characters to remind your children of their chores in a very positive manner. Imagine the computer is now continually instilling YOUR beliefs and values in your child through our loveable characters.
We have diligently compiled the world's best list of child appropriate websites for doing homework covering ALL main school subjects, allowing children to complete homework in a safe environment.
Children can access hundreds of educational games including:
- Memory games
- Learn to draw
- Hand-eye coordination
