Rosen Digital has just announced the launch of two new digital resources for middle school and high school students: Financial Literacy, an online database for economics and personal finance; and Teen CyberSmarts, an interactive ebook program that teaches kids about digital citizenship and cyber safety. Both programs have been specifically designed to support Common Core learning standards. And SLJTeen readers have a chance to evaluate both of these for free through October 5, 2012.
Financial Literacy covers everything from personal and household finance to market economics and globalization. With a growing emphasis on financial education and planning, the database makes economics and money management easy to understand and highly engaging. Teen CyberSmarts is the latest in Rosen’s ground-breaking interactive ebook collection. Companion to the award-winning CyberSmarts program for elementary schools, Teen CyberSmarts gives middle and high school students hands-on experience in navigating the online world in a safe, controlled environment. The Teen CyberSmarts also helps meet CIPA requirements to ensure federal funding through the E-rate program.
