Free online video curriculum teaching middle school, high school, and adult students the skills they need for success in the classroom, workplace, and everyday life.

How it Works

Using video-based lessons, students work at their own pace to create exciting projects using digital tools like Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. The curriculum includes premade lesson plans, rubrics, and sample student projects. And if you have questions as you start teaching, you can always send us an email or sign up for our weekly online “office hours” with a Google expert.

Students

Students can complete some lessons in as little as an hour, while others can be spread out across multiple periods. Teachers can use the curriculum once a week or fold it into their lesson plans for the entire year.

Lessons

In each lesson, students create projects while applying digital skills and practicing life skills like research, communication, and collaboration. All videos have transcripts, pause/rewind/fast-forward, and optional captioning, and teachers can track students’ progress in their dashboard.
