Learn21 Offers Students Online Learning Option

July 14, 2010

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – While many West Virginia students may not be in class this summer, that doesn’t mean they can’t go to school. The West Virginia Department of Education’s online learning website, Learn21, allows students to continue to learn when they’re away from the classroom. The site was demonstrated to the state Board of Education on Wednesday during its monthly meeting in Charleston.

“Learn21 allows students to learn while they play,” West Virginia Superintendent of Schools Steve Paine said. “Learn 21 is an ever-changing resource. As such, we need the help of educators, parents and students to provide feedback, which will lead the site’s evolution.”

Learn21 provides engaging Web-based math resources for students in grades pre K-12. Social studies and science resources will be added to the Learn21 website for the start of the 2010-2011 school year. Since its launch this spring, some 35,000 visits have been made to the site.

Learn21 provides multiple opportunities for principal, teacher and student feedback. Comment boxes are provided throughout the website for thoughts and suggestions.
