What is Google Applied Digital Skills?

This free, online curriculum teaches learners of all ages the skills they need for success in the classroom, workplace, and everyday life. Instead of teaching digital skills in a vacuum, videos guide learners through creating projects from scratch so they leave with resumes, budgets, business plans, and more.
