This year at ISTE 2017, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Learning.com, the nations leader in helping school districts teach students technology skills. For the last 18 years, Learning.com has been partnering with school district to provide award winning curriculum in key subjects such as Digital Literacy, Digital Citizenship, Coding, and Programming.
With more than 5 million students actively using the cloud based platform, Learning.com provides a simple solution for students and teachers to become partners in learning. It's more true now than ever that with an ever changing technology landscape and evolving digital curriculum that teachers are struggling to keep up with the skills they need to provide high quality lessons for their students. This is where Learning.com takes over.With an average cost of $7/student, now is a great time to bring Learning.com into your school. Click To Tweet
By using the Learning.com platform, teachers can select from cloud based modules organized into grade bands. Lessons are presented as animations and simulations that tie into a schools current curriculum through project based learning lessons. If time is of concern when bringing these lessons into the classroom, Learning.com also has a self-paced option where students can learn on their own time outside of the classroom.
By 2020, it is estimated that nearly 80% of jobs will require some level of technology proficiency. We live in a digital society. Students must be given the opportunity to learn and develop digital literacy skills – starting as early as Kindergarten. From keyboarding and word processing, to coding and computational thinking, digital literacy skills are needed more than ever. Learning.com makes it easy to teach students the critical digital literacy skills they must have to succeed.
