Small School Districts’ Association (SSDA) and Learning.com partnered to provide more than 20,000 fifth grade students in California with tools for acquiring relevant digital literacy skills. By adopting the TechLiteracy Skills Inventory, professors are able to access assessments to evaluate their student’s strengths and weaknesses related to core technology skills.

The TechLiteracy Skills solution makes it possible for educational institutions to include digital literacy as part of their curriculum thus supporting students to be ready for being competitive in the future labor market. It considers on the one hand the availability of digital contents, and on the other the professors’ role in addressing key technology learning difficulties encountered by students.

According to Debra Pearson, executive director of SSDA, “having the skills necessary to use technology for learning is critical. The TechLiteracy Skills Inventory helps to identify and fill a crucial gap for students to help them succeed in the classroom and beyond.”
