New Technology Curriculum Database Created by YouthLearn

We're pleased to announce the launch of a website for educators seeking technology curriculum for their programs: Afterschool Curriculum Choice: Technology Resources is a project of the YouthLearn Initiative and the U.S. Department of Education-funded National Partnership for Quality Afterschool Learning at SEDL.

This collection of resources is designed to help practitioners locate and make informed choices about high-quality technology resources to enrich their programs. We chose these curricular materials because they represent the wide variety of resources, from activity guides to online games to software packages, that can support compelling learning experiences in informal settings.

In addition to reflecting the promising practices described in the Technology Afterschool Training Toolkit, they correlate to the skills and expertise identified in the National Educational Technology Standards for Students. These standards were developed and recently updated by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). Many of the resources address academic content standards as well.

You can browse through all the resources by title, grade level or subject area. On the search page, you can find curricula that match your specific needs by selecting key words, design features, technology type or subject area.

Note that several resources contained in two other curriculum databases, Afterschool Curriculum Choice Literacy Resources and Consumers' Guide to Afterschool Science Resources, also integrate technology in meaningful ways. If you Browse by Title, a list of additional resources selected from these databases is appended to provide even more choices for you and your program.
