Canvas dust, already with a very nice name, is a search engine for 8-13 year olds, a kind of first gateway to the internet to allow them to do research in a suitable framework.

Jérôme Gaillard, primary school teacher in France, had the idea of creating a site, managed by several teachers, in order to offer young Internet users a search engine adapted to their age and skills.

As the creator of the site points out, “Google, which is the most used search engine, is also very unsuitable for young people. This search engine only contains sites that I have tested beforehand and which are suitable for this age group. "

Without advertising or use of personal data, this engine is also collaborative. Thus, anyone can submit a site which will then be tested and put online if it corresponds to the editorial line of the engine.

Finally, in the event that your search does not yield any results, the Internet user has the possibility of informing the editorial staff so that they can carry out research and update the search engine.

Free and ad-free, this engine does not record any personal data and is suitable for education in web research. Collaborative, this site evolves thanks to your comments and your proposals.

In short, a good initiative in the field, adapted to the needs of the field and which fits well into the digital philosophy: knowing how to share, collaborate and exchange to learn better.
