Quib.ly is a Q&A site that aims to help parents learn more about the devices their kids are currently using and will need to use in the future.
New devices can help bring family members together in ways previously not possible. Take the TinyTap iPad app for example – which gets kids and parents to work together to create a game. However, children whose parents aren’t tech-savvy may not have as much of a head start as others. Quib.ly is a Q&A site that aims to help parents better understand the new equipment their kids are currently using and will need to use in the future. The site acts as a community for members to keep each other informed about new technologies that will shape how today’s children work and create once they begin to take their first steps on the career ladder. Parents can ask questions, which are answered by community experts. Users can follow the topics that interest them or experts whose explanations they find useful. They can also apply to become an expert if they are a technology or family professional. The speed at which technology is changing how we go about our daily activities is underlined by a US Department of Labor statement that says: “65 percent of today’s grade school kids will end up at jobs that haven’t been invented yet.” Quib.ly could give parents the knowledge they need to ensure their children aren’t left behind.
