Teaching.com and URLimitless Education announced today a new partnership that aims to bring the latest educational principles to new generations in order to solve real-world problems using STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) principles.
URLimitless’ STEAM University™ Master Typing™ offer will bring new educational resources to children so that they can develop the crucial skills in our digital world, and to encourage students to master keyboarding.
Through Teaching.com’s flagship, multi-lingual product, Typing.com, students will be empowered with the digital skills and extensive keyboard lessons that will support their digital literacy, with the platform being fully integrated into URLimitless Education’s STEAM University offering.
Speaking about the launch of the new partnership this week, Austin Butler, CEO for Teaching.com said, “We’re changing online education by building exciting products that equip students and teachers with the tools to succeed in the classroom and beyond. And with over 75 million students and over 1.7 million educators using our products in their classrooms and home, we are proud to continue providing the best educational experience possible.”
URLimitless Education’s Executive Chairman, Ruben Salinas, also commented on the partnership, stating, “We are excited to announce our new partnership with Teaching.com. There is simply no other offering in the market that comes close to Teaching.com’s Typing.com product. We are excited to offer it to our customers as part of our STEAM University curriculum.”
Salinas, reflecting on the importance of digital literacy skills added, “To be successful, children need to master keyboarding. Typing is no longer enough. Developing the fundamental skill of keyboarding in our ever-expanding digital world is a critical success factor.”
With its mission to inspire children to innovate and solve real-world problems using STEAM principles, URLimitless Education was established at the beginning of 2021 as a benefit corporation. It recently launched an initiative to support St. Jude’s Research Hospital in its fundraising efforts through the #Inspiration4 mission, the first all-civilian mission to space.
URLimitless Education will donate 100% of its profits throughout the month of February to support the work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and is further encouraging donations and participation in the mission, where two participants will get the chance to go to space in history’s first all-civilian mission.
“We are also proud to join in support of URLimitless’ fundraising efforts through St. Jude’s Research Hospital’s Inspiration4 mission. Pediatric cancer research is a cause near and dear to my heart,” said Teaching.com CEO, Austin Butler.
URLimitless Education will be making its new STEAM University online curriculum available for students , offering virtual tools to ignite children’s curiosity. The company is also providing its unique monthly STEAM crate kits to kids, that offer them a hands-on experience to build an intense intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and new technical skills.
