Curriculum based on current research

The curriculum is designed in collaboration with Dr. Patricia Agatston, a national expert in Internet safety education, and includes detailed lesson plans and guides.
Grade appropriate, spiraling curriculum
We employ a spiraling curriculum that revisits topics as students grow — with units for K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. EasyTech Online Safety adds depth and richness to the content as students get older. Topics are covered and subjects are handled appropriately for each age group.
We introduce subjects as students are ready and prepare them as they grow.
We introduce topics throughout the school year in an integrated, appropriate way to support use of technology tied to core learning and student development. We revisit and reinforce important information throughout the year and, through the spiraling curriculum, across grade levels. This is far more effective than overwhelming students with too much information, out of context, once or twice a year.
Tackle challenging topics
Detailed notes, plans and guided discussions help teachers deal with potentially tough issues as they integrate online safety into core instruction. Parent resources are available in Spanish and English to help bridge the gap between school and home. Our materials for parents support a holistic approach to difficult subjects which often extend beyond school boundaries and jurisdiction.
Purchase as part of EasyTech or separately
All online safety materials are available as part of Learning.com’s EasyTech – an award-winning, interactive technology literacy curriculum for elementary and middle school students. EasyTech Online Safety is a complete K-12 digital learning solution in its own right and can be purchased separately from the main EasyTech curriculum. This is a great way to address E-Rate requirements and online safety concerns. It can also provide an ideal introduction to the world of EasyTech.
