What are "Applied Digital Skills"?

Applied Digital Skills is an online, project-based learning curriculum. Each lesson or workshop asks students to actively apply their learning of digital skills to help them solve real-world problems. Students watch videos that instruct them step-by-step how to build digital projects from scratch. Students who complete a lesson will have a project that demonstrates their academic learning, such as an infographic or an interactive story, or career readiness, such as a resume or a portfolio.

 

The Applied Digital Skills curriculum is free of charge, with ready-to-use lessons for learners of all ages.

Lessons are FREEFLEXIBLE. READY TO USE.

Each lesson has a series of videos that teach digital skills using Google Workspace applications, such as Docs, Sheets, and Slides. The videos allow students to move at their own pace. Digital skills help people responsibly use tools and applications to complete projects or tasks on a computer, tablet, or mobile device. These skills allow for easier communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking through technology - and play an important role in preparing students and learners for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
