Google | Applied Digital Skills
Applied Digital Skills is a free, online digital skills curriculum that has lessons for a wide range of students, from late elementary-school students to college students. Instead of teaching digital skills with an instruction manual, this curriculum uses a series of videos to guide students through creating a project from scratch. This means that students who complete a lesson leave with a useful project such as a resume, a college plan, an interactive story, and more.
