“Our students use their phones on a minute-by-minute basis, but when it came to keyboarding or using a computer learning and producing content, they were at a loss. Learning.com was our district’s choice because it gave us an organized, focused, relevant curriculum for our students that we could customize through our learning management system. The initial training that we received as well as the ongoing support has only enhanced our implementation of the program.”
