Today’s students are expected to use digital tools in transformational ways, but how is that possible if they don’t even know the basics?

Join us in this hands-on session to learn about EasyTech, your district’s adopted K-8 digital skills curriculum.  The interactive, engaging lessons are available to students online, and many are auto-scored. This means more time for you, as the teacher, to design learning activities that integrate technology instead of figuring out how to teach the technology.

EasyTech topics include: how the internet works, how to identify credible websites, how to use word processing as part of the writing process, what it means to design computer based solutions, and much, much more.

We’ve always taught students problem-solving skills, but how can your students learn to design computer based solutions to future problems? And how can we provide equitable exposure to coding? Our students need both computational thinking and coding experience in a real programming language.

That is why your district adopted EasyTech digital skills curriculum  The interactive, engaging lessons are available to students online, and many lessons are auto-scored.

The coding curriculum was designed to be used even by teachers without a coding background.
