Plan Options


Personal plan is for teachers who want to use Actively Learn regularly but do not yet have financial and instructional support from their school. The price point allows teachers to pay out of pocket. 

Team and School plans are for districts and schools to have an end-to-end solution to get students reading for depth. Our online literacy platform covers multiple learning scenarios: class reading, independent reading, and research and we also provide the professional development required to improve literacy pedagogy.

Pilot process for new partners


Pilots help schools and districts evaluate if Actively Learn meets their curricular and instructional goals. Our pilot process ensures critical feedback from teachers and students is collected prior to making a long-term investment decision. 

pilot phase 1 design 20151222.png
  • Determine curricular areas that would be the best test cases of Actively Learn's benefits

  • Determine which teachers would pilot

  • Socialize pilot goals and evaluation criteria with participants

  • Run a PD session with pilot teachers and instructional coaches (add more as needed)

  • Conduct pilot check-ins to review usage and pedagogy

  • Collect feedback quantitatively using surveys that measure learning outcomes, usability, and reliability
    (e.g. teacher survey and student survey)

  • Conduct interviews to gather anecdotal feedback

  • Evaluate survey results and anecdotal feedback

  • Determine size and scope of long-term rollout

Our pricing philosophy:
fairness and transparency

In an ideal world, everything we do at Actively Learn would be free to everyone, forever. But we only have one product, which is designed from the ground up for schools, and we don't think you want to see advertising all over it. This is why we have our premium versions. 

We are transparent with our pricing because we have nothing to hide; customers tell us our prices are very fair and we want you to make an informed decision. We've seen reading tools that offer much less and still charge $60 per student, and then you have to find other schools buying it cheaper to bargain for a better deal. We respect that you have enough to do without worrying about a vendor fleecing you, so we keep pricing simple and consistent.



Ways to save 

The cost of a school or district license can easily be offset by simple measures that save on traditional costs. 

  1. Substitute classics you buy (e.g. Romeo & Juliet) with the same ones digitally, for free.

  2. Avoid paper copying of internet articles, PDFs, and quizzes while making distribution to students even simpler. 

  3. Buy short-term digital rentals for books (as low as 99 cents for 3 months) instead of maintaining paper copies for years.

  4. Stop buying textbooks you don't use and use free high quality digital textbooks covering only the content you want.
