I recently finished a thirty day trial of Time4Learning an online interactive curriculum for home use for grades PreK through 8th. I received the trial offer around the time that we decided to home school this year. I accepted the offer and let C, my oldest play around with their on-line learning curriculum.
C really likes science/natural history so she mostly worked in that area of their site. C really liked working on their site because we hadn't started school yet, I just let her play around and self-direct. She navigated the site easily and really enjoyed what it taught her.
I prefer that my children have limited screen time and that I do more hands on and interpersonal study with them so a digital curriculum isn't a choice I would make. However, I think it would be a great supplementary tool for parents who need something that allows the children to be self-directed at certain times while they teach other children or take care of business.
