CATCH launches 2.0 version of online health curriculum

April 13, 2017


CATCH Global Foundation has updated the popular DigitalCATCH.org web platform with version 2.0, which makes the evidence-based CATCH health curriculum easier to access than ever before. Version 2.0 allows anyone to try out sample lessons and download resources for free using their computer, smart phone, or tablet device.

By taking its school and community health programs online, CATCH Global Foundation can more efficiently and cost-effectively deploy Pre-K – 8th grade child nutrition & fitness promotion programs to communities of any size. It also provides teachers, administrators, and parents the opportunity to “test drive” the health curriculum firsthand at no cost.

Visitors to the site can unlock additional free content and features by creating a Digital CATCH user profile. With a user profile, you can view an expanded selection of free content, tag “Favorite” materials, save individual lesson notes, or share comments on lessons and activities with peers.

For the first time ever, there is a Spanish version of the Digital CATCH platform which features a growing selection of materials and lessons.

The popular middle school E-cigarette prevention program CATCH My Breath has been delivered via Digital CATCH since its launch, which has enabled program adoption in over 100 middle schools across 17 states with more sites and states to come in the 2017-2018 school year. Samples of the CATCH My Breath health curriculum are freely available to all users.

You can test drive the various CATCH school and community health programs today at DigitalCATCH.org
