Digital is Dynamic: Technology for the 21st century
During the development phase of our Shurley English and our Shurley Grammar programs, our own in-house team of technology experts worked in tandem with our authors. Together, they designed digital enhancements, tailor-made for our unique approach to language arts instruction. It was important to us to develop purposeful digital-enhancements to the curriculum. Time in the classroom is valuable, and therefore a digital product must provide true, measurable value to the student and the learning process.
To this end, we developed our digital curriculum to...
- enhance the lessons with stimulating multi-sensory input.
- incorporate strategies to engage the brain and enhance understanding.
- activate and maintain student engagement within each lesson.
- provide parental support for at-home review opportunities.
- meet the growing need for technology instruction and learning in the Digital Age.
We invite you to explore each of our unique features below:
Within our digital materials, your students have access to Interactive Content that is purposeful to the learning process. Our content enhances the lesson with stimulating, multi-sensory input that promotes engagement throughout the lesson.
As students navigate through the lesson, they may access content through the Interactive Menu.

Plays helpful audio for the skills being taught on the page, such as Q&A Flows, Introductory and Practice Sentences, Vocabulary Words, and much more

SEDA: Shurley English Digital Assistant
With the Shurley English Digital Assistant: SEDA, you have the flexibility to change the way you deliver Language Arts instruction. Both the teacher and the student may listen to prerecorded lessons provided by SEDA. Teachers can use SEDA for blended learning, co-teaching, lesson preparation, and more. Students can use SEDA as a pre-teaching resource, a post-teaching reinforcement, and for student-centered, self-paced learning. Parents can use SEDA to stay on-pace with what is happening in the classroom and to provide accurate and timely reinforcement. SEDA is a wonderful resource that ensures continued learning at school and at home.
The Shurley eWorkbook is designed to complement your digital learning endeavors. Teachers may assign an eWorkbook page to their students from within their Digital Teacher's Manual. Students may utilize the toolbar to type, underline, or place dots directly on the eWorkbook page to complete their assignment. Then, the saved work may be retrieved and graded by the teacher. Now, both the student and the teacher know exactly where their assignments are located!
