EasyTech Scope and Sequence K–8 Overview

We live in a digital society. Students must be given the opportunity to learn and develop digital literacy skills – starting as early as Kindergarten. From Keyboarding and Word Processing to Computational Thinking and Coding, digital literacy skills are needed more than ever. The table below provides an at-a-glance look at the digital literacy skills covered by EasyTech and students’ progression across the kindergarten to eighth grade levels. Concepts are taught and assessed through our self-scored interactive Lessons, Application Exercises, Activities, Discussions, and Quizzes. Use this table and our suggested pacing units to determine the most appropriate grade level(s) to introduce technology skills in a variety of implementation settings. More detailed analyses are available for grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 upon request.
