Across the country, kids ages 8-14 are growing bored with “starter-social networks,” yet they aren’t ready for adult social networking sites either. These tech savvy kids are working with us to help build the kind of next generation social world they want.

Converging learning through play, adaptive learning technologies and social-emotional learning, The OneSeventeen Media suite of products and services provides kids multiple venues to help them manage their emotions, make responsible decisions and resolve conflict vountarily through a safer, social community, and believe it or not, to really have some fun sharing like they have never before!

By listening to kids, we’ve come to understand the challenges they’re faced with in an increasingly complicated world. Not necessarily bad stuff, although there is enough of that out there. We’re talking about the stuff all of us have had to sort out – it’s the everyday stuff kids want to turn to peers and mentors (who’ve been there and done that) for the real skinny. NEW!

PlumbBrain - “It’s a place for kids to grow vs. just another place to go”

PlumbBrian is a new, yet familiar, social community. It goes beyond the same me-to-starter-social-networks. With a much deeper purpose, this “social world” helps kids navigate their growing up years with the same cool features they’ve come to already know how to use and love about social networks, in addition to, more cool and unexpected activities they want. PlumbBrain provides what kids are now asking for - a sophisticated community that meets their social, emotional, entertainment and educational needs while addressing their character development in a highly creative and engaging way all in one place!

Contact us to learn how your youth-based organiztion can have its own privately protected PlumbBrain Social Network as part of our Software as a Service Platform.
