Learning.com, a provider of web-based assessments designed to measure students’ technology proficiency, announced that more than 1 million K-8 students in Texas now are using the company’s online EasyTech instructional solution to help them master digital literacy. Looking to ensure that students meet the requirements set forth under the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Technology Applications standards, several Texas districts reportedly have adopted EasyTech, an online program that facilitates the integration of technology into core subject areas such as math, science, language arts, and social studies. Combined with Learning.com’s new TechLiteracy Assessment tool, an online tool designed to gauge how effectively students are using technology, schools can better prepare students for the challenges of the 21st century by equipping them with the skills they need to be successful in a technology-laden workforce, company executives say.
