The Digital Dig introduces learners to some popular keyboard shortcuts and tools that will help them complete tasks more quickly. The Chrome simulator in Partner Dash is an additional service and may need to be turned on in the Google Admin for students to access.
If your learners are new using a Chromebook consider selecting specific slides to chunk learning.
Copy and repurpose slides from the Digital Dig in your Drive then share via your Learning Site for your learners. See example here from BoI College by Kerry Boyde -Preece
