Google Applied Digital Skills

Google introduced a new set of digital lessons called Applied Digital Skills.

There are lessons that tie in well with technology, business, financial literacy, etc. I did the “Technology at Work” lesson in my Entrepreneurship classes. It was a great lesson that helped students see the value of technology in various careers and sectors. There were 2 short videos to guide students through the lesson and then students completed a short research project that took 1-1.5 class periods. Students were able to select from a list of suggested topics or could select their own. They really liked the format and the change of pace from our typical lessons. I’m planning on incorporating a few more into my fall semester!

Love the intro:

 

Teachers sign up with a school email to access the lessons and students use their school emails. If you implement a lesson in the fall, you’ll get a survey from Google about the activity. If you wouldn’t mind putting my school email in (jacqueline.prester @ mansfieldschools.com) as the referral, I’d appreciate it. I’ll get a donorschoose gift card! Thank you!! 🙂
