Research Project: Equal Access to Technology

In this lesson, students research a topic related to access to technology and create a report to communicate their findings.

Getting started is easy. Go to the Applied Digital Skills website and sign up to set up your first class. Check out this guide with step-by-step instructions or go directly to the lesson through this link.

This lesson uses videos to teach critical life and technology skills through a self-guided research project. Students research a topic related to technology access and create a report to communicate their findings. 

By the end of these lessons, students should be able to:

  • Apply the technology skills learned in previous lessons while using these technology practices: ethics, analysis, collaboration, research, creativity, connections, communication, and computational thinking.
  • Build knowledge by actively exploring real-world issues and problems, developing theories, and pursuing answers and solutions
  • Use technology and other information tools to analyze and organize information
  • Demonstrate mastery of technology tools for accessing information and pursuing inquiry
  • Develop and refine a range of questions to frame the search for new understanding
  • Display initiative and engagement by posing questions and investigating answers beyond collection of superficial facts
  • Evaluate information for accuracy, validity, and suitability
  • Choose appropriate tools to analyze and organize information
  • Seek divergent perspectives during information gathering and assessment
  • Monitor information-seeking processes for effectiveness, and adapt as necessary
  • Demonstrate leadership and confidence by presenting ideas in both formal and informal settings
