Playback speed:

Welcome to Digital Tools for Everyday Tasks!

In this unit, you will learn how to  protect your personal information by setting up a Google account, if you don’t  already have one, and creating a strong password.

You’ll search the internet for information  about different activities and places.

And list ideas for things to do in a digital document.

You will also link websites you  find in your internet search in the digital document so you can easily  remember and find the information later.

Then, you will communicate with your  friend about your day out using email.

You will complete the activities  for this unit using a web browser.

The examples in these videos use Google  Chrome, but use any browser you like.

You can use the skills you will  practice in this unit in many ways.

While you could find out the movies playing  in your area in the newspaper, for example, the internet allows you to quickly  find more details and information, like biographies of the actors and  directors, trailers, and plot descriptions.

Digital tools also help you communicate,  both at work and in your personal life.

You might send an email to  a friend about making plans or type up a document about a  project to send to a teacher or boss.

Have fun using digital tools to find and  share activities for you and a friend!

To get started, move on to the next  video to create a Google account.

Or, if you already have a Google account, move  on to any activity you would like to explore.
