OpenOffice4Kids - Educating kids the right way

Filed under
OOo

Office suites are mainly intended for adults. But sometimes, kids write too. And when they do, they work with tools intended for their parents, functionality and looks wise. This makes the chance of a child liking big, complex word processors and spreadsheet software less likely. But what if you helped them a bit?

This is exactly what OpenOffice4Kids (OOo4kids) is for, part of the Education OpenOffice (EduOOo) project. While the parent project aims toward establishing a bridge between OpenOffice.org and the world of education, OOo4kids aims at the younger generations.

OOo4kids is designed with 7-12 year old children in mind, tailored for education and works on all major platforms and in many languages. And while international language support may be a lesser deal with the main releases, it is even more important here, because most children do not possess a very high level of technical skills in foreign languages.

So let's see what OOo4kids can do.
