The Digital Dig introduces learners to some popular keyboard shortcuts and tools that will help them complete tasks more quickly. If your learners are new using a Chromebook consider selecting specific slides to chunk learning over a series of lessons.
Elements of the Digital Dig include links to examples that can be copied and repurposed for your learners.
Include opportunities for learners to create with their chromebooks and connect with new learning within existing programmes of learning.
This means practising what they are learning , everyday. It is critical to establish routines and expectations of a Cybersmart Learner early, to support future learning and empower learners to connect with their responsibilities as a Digital Citizen.
Copy and repurpose slides from the Digital Dig in your Drive then share via your Learning Site for your learners.
