Ubuntu for Tots December 9, 2005

Posted by Carthik in applications, guides, ubuntu.

This should serve as a quick guide for parents who want to ease their children into using Linux from a very young age. Some of the tips here may even help your kids have fun while using the computer 😉

1) Try Edubuntu for your children.
2) Read the Kids Linux Article for more pointers.
3) For educational software, that kids will enjoy using, check out gcompris. Useful for ages 2 – 10.

I had been out shopping with a friend for Holiday gifts for tots, and most of the educational toys are so expensive, which got me started on looking for cheaper, and better alternatives. Hope this helps you some.

majikstreet,

If I were you, I should try to get them started. I have seen that my dad only needs a very small subset of software to work stably, and in his case, everything he needs “just works” so there was no problem getting him to use Ubuntu.

my little sister and broter ages 11 and 8 are both enjoy edubuntu games as much as its windows games counterpart. They’re curiously give it a try soon after I gave a (once) glimpse tour of it. They love it. Even my little sister manage to plug in the hard disk containing edubuntu by herself! (me and my older brother had never ever taught her about hardware stuff before). I think nowdays kids are more natively in tune with computer stuff. 🙂

Hi. I am looking for some “Ubuntu” textbooks for young kids, ages 6-11, that our relatively young (early 20s) teachers can use for their students.

PDF format is fine. So, links will do.

Thank you son much in advance.

Ramon
