How can afterschool programs make the most of technology, meet the needs of diverse students, and achieve multiple program goals, all while staying within budget? A new online resource from EDC can help.
Afterschool Curriculum Choice: Technology Resources helps practitioners find high-quality resources that are designed to suit diverse groups of students, such as teens or English-language learners. The site offers a variety of resources—from activity guides to online games to software packages—searchable by title, grade level, and subject area.
“If educators are seeking a technology-enriched activity for a particular group, for a particular purpose, or on a particular theme, this database identifies the strongest materials from among the vast array of resources available,” says EDC’s Tony Streit.
The Web site was developed by the YouthLearn Initiative at EDC and the National Partnership for Quality Afterschool Learning at SEDL, with funding from the U.S. Department of Education.
