Florida Partnership with Learning.com Brings Digital Curriculum to Rural Districts

11/17/2014 12:00:00 AM

Portland, Ore. and Tallahassee, Fla. (Nov. 17, 2014) – A new initiative, designed to help rural districts ensure that teachers and students have access to high-quality digital content, is underway in Florida. The Florida Regional Consortium Program, developed through a partnership with Learning.com and Florida Department of Education (DOE), will provide standards-aligned digital content and tools to a large contingent of rural schools at no cost. Three consortia – North East Florida Educational Consortium (NEFEC), Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC) and Heartland Educational Consortium – are eligible, and more than 235 schools have already enrolled in the program.

Learning.com will provide consortia members with Curriculum Foundry, a new solution that offers a searchable content repository and tools to build and share digital curriculum that aligns to state standards. Districts also have access to Learning.com’s digital literacy curriculum to ensure their students have the technology skills to succeed in a digital classroom.

“NEFEC is pleased to be able to work with Learning.com to bring this opportunity to the teachers and students in our districts,” said Jim Surrency, executive director of NEFEC, “The award-winning curriculum and user-friendly Web platform provide an easy transition for stakeholders into a more technology-integrated environment.”

Professional development training at the districts will be delivered by Learning.com personnel, by the consortia or in partnership, using resources from both. The partnership encompasses a one-year rollout of services, with an additional year of support to follow. Initially, up to 250 buildings will be offered vouchers to obtain Learning.com tools and content.

“We’re looking forward to building a strong working relationship with the consortia,” said Dr. Cliff Green, vice president of education and customer experience for Learning.com. “This partnership presents an exciting opportunity to provide rural Florida districts with resources to help their teachers and students succeed.”
