Age of Learning Offers Digital Learning Programs to Schools, Children Affected by the Coronavirus Outbreak

March 11, 2020

To help the millions* of U.S. children whose schools are closed due to the coronavirus, Age of Learning provides free home access to our leading digital education programsABCmouse, Adventure Academy, and ReadingIQ—for all affected preschool through middle school students.

Schools and school districts facing closures can get free accounts for their students to continue learning at home by visiting www.AofL.com/schools

Hundreds of thousands of children in the U.S. are currently home due to school closures as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.* That number is only rising. In response, education technology provider Age of Learning, Inc., is offering families at affected schools free at-home access to ABCmouse, the research-proven learning resource for ages 2­–8; Adventure Academy, the award-winning educational multiplayer game for ages 8–13; and ReadingIQ, a digital library and literacy platform for children 12 and under.

In addition to this initiative in the U.S., Age of Learning is providing its resources to children in other countries affected by the coronavirus at no cost.

Interruptions in learning due to unanticipated events such as school closures can have significant negative impacts on children’s academic growth and development, as well as on their need for stability and consistency. Particularly when in-school learning isn’t possible, using research-based digital education programs at home can help children stay engaged, provide them valuable learning experiences, and maintain some continuity in their lives.

Schools and districts facing closures should visit www.AofL.com/schools for free access to these learning tools while schools are closed through the spring.
