Tech Quest is a recently added feature to Learning.com’s EasyTech K-12 digital literacy curriculum. With one-click implementation, Tech Quest automatically assigns students auto-scored, student-led, self-paced, grade-level curriculum. Students choose an avatar, click on the first step and continue along their pathway, unlocking interactive lessons and videos that teach essential technology skills — without teachers needing to manage the classes or choose lessons.
Critically, the online safety content within Tech Quest meets the requirements of eRate certification. Plus, Tech Quest allows students access to ongoing keyboarding practice to develop fluency and automaticity.
“Tech Quest makes it easier than ever for teachers to ensure all students can easily navigate their devices – safely, efficiently and with future-ready skills that are now essential in every content area,” said Keith Oelrich, CEO of Learning.com. “We know that overstretched teachers and technology coordinators love Tech Quest, but Learning.com is delighted that EdTech Awards judges also recognize its value and innovation.”
The EdTech Awards is the world’s largest recognition program for education technology, recognizing exceptional contributions in transforming education through technology to enrich the lives of learners. This year’s finalists and winners were narrowed from the larger field and judged based on various criteria, including: pedagogical workability, efficacy and results, support, clarity, value and potential.
“As events unfold on the world stage that seem to inch ever closer to a precipice unknown, we are reminded that the leaders and innovators of education technology have always worked on the edge,” said Victor Rivero, who as Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, oversees the awards program. “To the innovators, leaders, and trendsetters in K-12, higher education, and workforce learning who continue connecting, producing and persisting despite all challenges—a hearty hat-tip and a grand salute!”
