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 technology’s impact on the workplace and on people’s daily lives. Then, they create a report to communicate their findings. 

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

  • Explain how technology creates new jobs and changes the way people work.
  • Recognize information and innovation as key drivers of today’s economy.
  • Describe various ways technology continuously changes the workplace.
  • Identify different ways technology is used in jobs that may not be typically thought of as “tech” jobs.
  • Plan and employ effective research strategies to locate information and other resources for their intellectual or creative pursuits
  • Publish or present content that customizes the message and medium for their intended audiences
