Does Your Child Have the Skills that Matter in Our Digital World?
Every day, new technologies are invented and the digital learning curve grows steeper for your child. Not only are children with digital literacy skills more prepared for the demands of school, college and/or the workplace, they score better on online standardized tests. Bring Learning.com’s technology solutions to your child’s school today.
Foundational digital skills prepare students to effectively learn in a modern classroom. From understanding the differences between hardware and software, learning how to navigate menus and toolbars as well as becoming proficient at keyboarding, these skills will save them time and frustration when completing homework, doing in-class assignments and successfully taking online tests.
More than 1.2 billion people use business applications in 140 countries and 107 languages around the world. Knowing how to effectively use a word processor, create and interpret spreadsheets or design a digital presentation is critical to the success of your child in school as well as their future workplace.
90% of parents want their child to study computer science. Computational thinking and coding involve new ways of problem solving tied to computer science concepts such as logic, reasoning and creativity. These skills are vital to succeeding in the new digital economy whether your child becomes a computer programmer or not.
Why is Digital Literacy Important?
Every time your child interacts with a technology device, the internet or digital media, they are using some level of digital literacy. When they learn computer, mouse and keyboarding skills, they’re gaining knowledge that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Skills like online communication, web browsing and online safety help prepare them to appropriately interact with technology in real-world situations.
Learning.com’s solutions were created by teacher and school leaders to offer students an easy, flexible way to learn vital digital skills. Students who use Learning.com score better on educational tests and develop critical skills including keyboarding, digital citizenship, online safety, business applications, computational thinking, coding as well as media and information literacy skills.

Keep Your Child Safe Online
As parents know, the internet can be an enlightening and powerful source of information and entertainment, but also a dangerous medium. It is also the digital community where your child interacts with the world just about any hour of the day, 7 days a week. As we’ve seen with cyberbullying and online stalking, the difference between an educated and uneducated digital user cannot be overstated.
