Foundations of ESOL & Technology: Learn English and Computer Skills
For beginner to advanced level learners, our Foundations of ESOL & Technology: Learn English and Computer Skills class combines English language instruction with civics education and the skills needed for employment in our tech-driven world. Certification and technology skills training are included through the Northstar Digital Literacy and Google Applied Digital Skills platforms. Individual career counseling and employment preparation are available to all students.
Northstar Digital Literacy will help you master basic computer and internet skills, including the creation of documents, spreadsheets, and presentations in Microsoft Office; Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Participants will earn certificates for passing assessments.
Students will also learn about cloud-based computing through Google Workspace. At the end of this course, students may take an optional exam to certify their proficiency in the platform.
This class is offered to all students from beginner to advanced levels. All classes will begin online and may transition to in-person classes based on guidance from the local school district and the State Department of Education.
