How much instruction time is needed to teach the curriculum?

In addition, Learning.com provides a scope and sequence from which technology plans can be developed and adapted to meet your district’s unique needs.

How is the curriculum implemented?

Over 1,200 school districts currently user Learning.com curriculum so chances are, there is a Learning.com school district near you. We don’t publish a list of school districts, but you can contact us to request a Learning.com representative with you to provide a local reference.
Is the curriculum aligned to instructional standards? If so, which ones?
Yes, our curriculum is aligned to many national, international and state standards including ISTE, CSTA and Common Core State Standards, to name a few.
What grade levels is the curriculum used in?
Our curriculum spans kindergarten through 12th grade and is organized by grade level and essential skill.
Does the curriculum teach specific branded products such as Microsoft Word, Google Docs or Apple Numbers?
Our digital literacy curriculum intentionally does not teach to a particular productivity software package (e.g., Microsoft, Google, Apple). Our goal is to train students with proper productivity skills and knowledge and to teach higher-order thinking skills. The pedagogy we use allows students to grasp key concepts so they can apply them in a variety of digital formats including word processing, spreadsheet and presentation applications. This is the most effective way to learn skills that can be applied across any productivity application and prepare students for the demands of high school, college, and the workforce.
We recommend that districts have their students use our EasyTech Application Exercises and Inquiry Projects together with their district’s preferred productivity software to apply what they have learned in EasyTech’s direct instructional content.
