A recent survey found that 80% of college admission boards look at prospective student’s social media and over 90% of employers look for job candidates who are digitally literate. Today almost every job relies on some aspect of technology; whether it’s sitting at a PC in an office, working at a checkout or delivering parcels. This course will help students with many aspects of being digitally literate: distinguishing between credible and disingenuous sources, honing presentation skills, examining your digital footprint, safely navigating social media, as well as some basic word processing proficiency.
