Amazon today announced its Kindle Free Time feature that helps parents monitor when kids are using tablets and what they’re using them for.

The Kindle Free Time feature lets you set limits on how long your kids can use the tablet and even allows you to limit by specific features. There’s also a kid-friendly interface that allows parents to visually track what their kids are doing more easily.

This is feature looks minor in the scheme of things, but it could leave a major impact on the Kindle’s use in the classroom. Imagine automatically generated reading logs…

The upgraded Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD will both have access to the new Kindle FreeTime feature, which you can see in the image above. For more, be sure to check out our roundup of everything you need to know about today’s event.
