The digital media are becoming more and more accessible to everyone.

Access to digital content by special technologies (Internet, IPTV, mobile phone, etc.) is much more easier for ages approx. 3-18 years, than for their parents and teachers. The problem is, in most cases, the digital content hasn’t been filtered. So, such type of content can cause distortions in the personality development of children's consciousness.

The solutions introduced in the market so far - " parental control " V- chip band, film classification etc. - are far from perfect, because they can be evaded or they need, excessive parental time expenses Moreover, there is a huge drawback: they are based on prohibition and do not rely on the motivation and curiosity of children and therefore there is no educational function.

There are natural upbringing needs of the parents and teachers to confront the children to digital contents without harmful affects.

Our goal is: the content categorization will be the task of typically professionals and educators. The content will be grouped by them according to different taxonomy systems: age group (3-5 , 5-7, etc. synchronized to school and kindergarten themes), orientation ( skill, art, logic , math, etc.). Initially, the basic content categories are grouped by age and gender, so as not to appear too complicated. Later also the society (teachers, NGOs, parents) may contribute to the expansion, and the system is scheduled to become profitable and self-supporting.
