Kid mode allows your child to play games and complete Guided Lessons in an ad-free environment, without having access to your account settings.
Once you have added a child to your account, you can get your kids started by visiting education.com/games/play or by accessing “Kid mode” from your Premium user ID.
If you want to immediately hand off your device, selecting “Launch Student Access” from the Kid mode link will take you directly to a new ad-free window where your child can press Choose Player. From there, your child will be taken to a Quest page where he or she can access Reading, Math and Typing content from any grade level or the Assignments that you’ve created for them. On this page, your child can set the grade level at which they wish to work for each separate subject.
If you wish to lock a child’s grade level (so the child will not be able to change the grade level of games or other content), or hide the grade level shown, parents can select this option on the homepage by clicking on the pencil next to your child’s avatar. Teachers can lock or hide the grade level for *all* students in the class from their Classroom Mode page. You can also select to lock or hide the grade level for individual students under the “Your Students” page.
If you aren’t directly handing off your device, press “View Instructions” and you will find the different ways to access our Guided Lessons and Assignments. If you’re a teacher, you can use our Classroom mode or give your students their individual student codes to use so each student can only access his/her own profile and content.
If your student wishes to log out, he can choose “Sign Out” from the dropdown at the top right of the screen. If the student wishes to switch to a new player on the same device, he/she can click on “Players” on the left of the screen, or click on his/her name in the top right and then select Switch Player. This option will only be available if there is more than one student listed, and the student is not logged in with their individual student code.
