Age of Learning Debuts Elementary School Resources

Age of Learning has launched ABCmouse for Schools, a digital learning resources for grades preK-2, at this week's ISTE conference.

"ABCmouse for Schools offers two solutions for preK through 2nd grade: ABCmouse Early Learning Academy, a comprehensive supplemental curriculum that builds a strong foundation for academic success across subject areas required for 3rd grade readiness; and the new ABCmouse English Language Learning Academy, which can be used by teachers as a core program or as a rich supplemental resource to provide a developmentally appropriate English language immersion experience," according to a news release.

ABCmouse for Schools adds professional development, student management, progress reporting and curriculum alignment.

"ABCmouse is already a trusted early learning program for more than 65,000 classroom teachers," said David Samuelson, Age of Learning's head of global schools, in a prepared statement. "However, district-level educators have asked for additional features to support implementation of this highly effective supplemental curriculum across all of their early elementary classrooms, with the goal of ensuring that all of their younger students become truly 3rd-grade-ready. To meet this critical need, we spent more than a year developing the suite of ABCmouse for Schools tools and resources, based on feedback from teachers around the country and globally along with guidance from our curriculum board and advisors."
