I teach my grandson at home so use the internet with him a lot to find out information. He would love just to use you-tube, but that is banned when he is in learning mode.
In the "If you can't beat them, join them" mode, I am now trying to teach him to programme online.
Both he and his sister enjoy Minecraft, so we buy everything Minecraft to get them playing together. Today, he showed me a Minecraft video on Galileo, so we spent the next hour looking for important facts about Galileo, poor man, who was imprisoned for heresy after supporting Copernicus in his finding that the earth moved round the sun.
Because his mother and I both teach him, we have a lot of discussion about how much he uses the internet, and what he should look at.
When in my house, I always know what both he and his sister are on, because the computer is visible wherever I am. Any sign of hiding anything and it gets switched off.
