Mobicip (pronounced mo-be-sip), based in Newbury Park, is named after mobile CIPA. CIPA stands for Children’s Internet Protection Act, a regulation by the US government that mandates secure Internet access when provided by public schools or libraries. In the dark days before smartphones and tablets, the founders had a vision that education is going to be transformed by ubiquitous always-on mobile technology in the hands of K-12 students. And so Mobicip was born, with a mission to create and foster the safe use of technology for learning. A million downloads, five years, and petabytes of usage later, they believe the vision has come full circle as the world as we know it, and not just education, has been transformed. They write a great blog for parents that you will want to read. This recent article, Introduce Your Kids to Internet Ethics, is a very insightful post.
