Digital Literacy for High School

Equip students with the digital and problem-solving skills they will need to succeed in their future.

The Future of Work is Redefining Readiness

Prepare students with scaffolded curriculum that transforms students from technology users to digital problem-solvers, critical thinkers, and innovative designers.

Digital Skills 

Future readiness starts with foundational digital skills that enable students to become nimble, proficient, and digitally literate technology users.

Computer Science

Hands-on and authentic practice with computational thinking, coding, and robotics distinguishes students and equips them with the higher-order thinking skills needed to use technology as a tool to create.

Digital Citizenship

Immersing students in technology-driven learning experiences mandates that they also develop digital citizenship skills to ensure they use digital tools strategically and safely.

Digital Literacy Content Areas

The curriculum is available as a comprehensive solution or by individual content areas.

Keyboarding

High school students are expected to type multi-paragraph and multi-page reports using digital tools. Yet, they often lack the keyboarding skills they need to generate and format text faster than they can by hand, and high schools rarely have the instructional time or the teachers to devote to developing these skills.

We designed our Adaptive Keyboarding program to solve these challenges. Adaptive Keyboarding hones typing technique, accuracy, and speed through its interactive interface that:

  • Encourages independent practice with story challenges that are customizable at the individual and class level.
  • Individualizes touch-typing with diagnostic exercises that adapt content to address areas of keyboarding weakness for each student.
  • Gamifies keyboarding practice by awarding game time and badges for specific achievements.
  • Tracks progress and growth in easy-to-use dashboards and reports available at the student, class, school, and district-level.

Digital Citizenship

Today’s students use the power of the internet and online media to connect, learn, and create. At the same time, educators face the challenge of teaching students how to use technology safely and effectively to combat cyberbullying, keep their online information private, identify credible sources, and make ethical and informed decisions.

That’s why we teamed up with Common Sense Media to deliver their expert-developed curriculum backed by the power of the Learning.com platform. With this integration, schools and districts:

  • Gain access to over 24 lessons and quizzes that focus on online safety and digital citizenship.
  • Assess student understanding and track progress across these lessons with auto-scored quizzes that can be assigned to students.
  • Meet CIPA and e-Rate requirements with highly interactive and engaging lessons as well as built-in reporting that demonstrates fulfillment.*

*This may not cover individual state and local laws that could have other requirements.

Coding

Our high school coding curriculum immerses students in Python programming through a Build-Modify-Create pedagogy. It is a turn-key solution with detailed lesson plans, answer keys for every activity, sample projects and rubrics, and in-lesson monitoring.

The curriculum is designed to give students authentic practice with a real coding language so they develop career-ready coding skills and a broader interest in coding and computer science. Schools and districts use the high school coding program to:

  • Scaffold coding skills across five mini-courses, including Text-Based Coding Basics, Intro to Python I, Intro to Python II, Intro to Python III, and Game Design.
  • Prepare high school students for the Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA): Introduction to Programming with Python certification exam.
  • Engage students in Python programming and address computer science principles through coding challenges, debugging practice, and quizzes.
  • Meet key CSTA standards as well as state computer science and technology standards.

Virtual Robotics – Coming soon!

Robotics programs are surging in popularity as a hands-on way to engage students in computer science, STEM, and problem-solving concepts, but the cost of implementing this type of program is often a barrier to entry for schools.

To solve this, we are partnering with CoderZ to deliver a virtual robotics program that eliminates the requirement of extensive teacher training and a massive technology investment. With this program, schools and districts:

  • Enhance learning with individualized instruction, gamified programming practice, and immediate feedback.
  • Scale their robotics program at a far lower cost and easily launch the curriculum with its simple interface.
  • Meet CSTA, Common Core for Mathematical Practice, and NGSS standards.
  • Measure student learning with dynamic dashboards that feature progress and performance tracking.

After many failed attempts at rummaging together a cohesive instructional technology curriculum, we found EasyTech and Learning.com. It is a one-stop shop for Digital Citizenship, Keyboarding, Productivity Tools, Coding and so much more. It is linked to the Common Core and a Scope and Sequence is provided for novice teachers to follow. Our teachers have moved from tears and frustration to happy and successful Instructional Technology educators. Our teachers couldn’t be happier and our students’ engagement is higher than it has ever been. Thank you Learning.com!
