Orlando, Fla. (November 9, 2015) – At iNACOL’s Blended and Online Learning Symposium, Learning.com today announced key enhancements to its flagship product, EasyTech, which will help ensure students have the skills needed to leverage technology in an educational setting. Today's students are digital natives, yet many do not have the critical digital literacy skills they need for learning, such as keyboarding and word processing, visual mapping, and online communication.
EasyTech now features new middle school lessons that cover real-life applications of spreadsheet, presentation and image editing tools, as well as how to effectively search the web and collaborate online. Other new lessons added to EasyTech in the past year included five middle school word processing lessons and three online safety lessons for middle and high school.
“Thriving in an online school, flipped classroom or blended learning environment requires students to have digital literacy skills,” said Learning.com CEO Keith Oelrich. “Learning.com is committed to providing solutions that help students develop the digital literacy skills they need to be successful online learners.”
New lessons are now available for all EasyTech customers. To learn more, visit the digital literacy solutions page or visit Learning.com in Orlando at the iNACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium from November 8-11 at Booth 419.
