Digital Passport

Template from SLIDESMANIA!


Using technology is great to help us learn. However, effective use of them comes when we know the digital skills to utilise them.

Knowing how to access, what to click on, how to use an app, tips and shortcuts and more advanced levels make it easier and quicker so you spend more time learning than just trying to work out how to get on to the device.
