In this course, you will learn how to find, understand and use information on the internet, in your courses and from non-internet sources. You will also develop skills to help you work in groups, do creative projects and solve problems. These are all skills that are essential if you want to be successful as an online student and indispensable as a global citizen in the 21st century, no matter what job you get, what kind of house you have and what your hobbies are.
Each lesson is a new skill. Application is by using these skills to complete an assignment in “regular” course. In other words, each lesson is a chance to take an assignment you have to complete in another course anyway (English, Science, History, etc.) and learn the skills you need to complete that assignment. After the lesson, you use your new skill on the assignment in your English, Science or History course. Your submission in this course is not anything you would have to do to complete your English, Science or History assignment anyway. It’s a “twofer”!
