Tech Bytes

YouTube has announced a new set of parental controls for tweens and teens. They’re called “supervised experiences,” and they allow parents to give expanded access to older children who’ve outgrown the YouTube Kids app, while shielding them from content reserved for adults.

The new top-of-the- line ‘Ring’ doorbell has a larger field of view than previous models. You can see someone outside from head to toe. The “Pro 2” model also offers enhanced motion detection. It costs about $250 and is expected to ship at the end of next month.

Thursday is National Digital Learning Day, celebrating the value of education through technology, which has become especially critical during the pandemic. The goal is to help students personalize their experiences and effectively enable online schooling from anywhere.
