About The Product

EMERGE WITH COMPUTER SKILLS is a new and revolutionary way to teach and learn about digital literacy. It bridges the gap between conventional education and the way students want to learn by creating an environment that encourages students to do what comes naturally: surf the Web. Leveraging the latest technologies such as RSS feeds, YouTube videos, and Web links, EMERGE promotes discovery learning, allowing students to explore, peruse, skip over, delve, wander, and drill into skills.


  • RETENTION – Let's face it; students don't read long, dense text. Emerge with Computers divides lessons into a series of manageable sections, helping students retain more information.
  • ENGAGEMENT – Emerge with Computer Skills lets students learn in a completely interactive environment, which makes learning feel like surfing the Web!
  • DISCOVERY LEARNING – Students are encouraged to learn by "clicking around" as they would on the Internet.
  • ASSESSMENT – Emerge with Computer Skills contains an abundance of assessment opportunities, many of which are auto graded!
