DIGITAL SKILLS PLAYLIST

Develop Digital Literacy for Your Students

We recognize that teaching your students right now is challenging and puts additional stress on teachers, technology departments, and parents. 

To help you support continuity of instruction, we created the Learning.com Digital Skills Playlist, a free learning resource designed to help develop digital literacy in a distance learning environment.

What Is Included in the Digital Skills Playlist?

Grade-specific lessons, which are individualized digital videos with an interactive and gamified interface that students complete at their own pace. All lessons are available in English and Spanish.

What Is the Digital Skills Playlist?

The Digital Skills Playlist is a free resource for K-8 students. It consists of grade-specific digital literacy lessons that students and parents can easily access and launch at home without any set up or district subscription required.

With this tool, your students, and at no cost, dive into the interactive digital lessons and hands-on projects available in a Learning.com curriculum subscription.

How Does the Digital Skills Playlist Work?

Complete the form and you will receive a unique link for your students.

  • If you are a teacher or administrator, you can share it with as many of your teachers, parents, and students as you want.
  • For parents, you can use this for your different students.

When a student clicks on the link, it opens the Digital Skills Playlist where they select their grade level and choose a lesson to begin. There are no login credentials to remember and no class setup or rostering steps for your educators to go through.

We have also created an accompanying resource document for teachers and parents that can be accessed along with our existing parent resources from within the Playlist interface to explain more about the lessons provided.

Unique links to the Digital Skills Playlist expire on June 30, 2020. This date may be extended as the changes to academic schedules shift.

Why Digital Literacy?

Digital literacy transforms students from technology users to digital problem-solvers, critical thinkers, and innovative designers.

Future Readiness
Future readiness starts with foundational digital skills that enable students to become nimble, proficient, and digitally literate technology users.
Empowered Learning
With digital literacy, students learn to harness educational technology to lead their learning, demonstrate their knowledge, and solve real-world problems.
Distance Learning
As distance and online learning become our new reality, digital skills in computer science, digital citizenship, and software use will be essential to the success of students in a virtual environment.
Digital Equity
Digital literacy promotes digital equity by helping to bridge the digital readiness gap and overcome the digital use divide in classrooms, whether in person or online.
