Using Digital Tools to Virtually Communicate

Skill(s) Being Assessed: Technology
What to submit/deliverables: Microsoft Word document that addresses all assignment requirements
(submitted in Blackboard – Week 5).
What is the value of doing this assignment? We communicate virtually all the
time—through email, text messages, web conferences, etc. Attending online classes makes it
even more important to find ways to connect with your professor and to use the right tools to
do it. This assignment gives you an opportunity to practice the digital proficiency process
(DPP) by using digital tools to communicate with your professor. You can also use your digital
proficiency skills to empower you at work and in life!
Your goal for this assignment is to: Use digital tools to draft, format, and edit a
five-paragraph letter to your professor about your experience as a college student so far.
Steps to complete: In Week 5, complete and submit your assignment in Blackboard using the
following steps:
Step 1: New Word Document
● Open Microsoft Word.
● Create a new blank document.
● Type your name at the top of your letter.
● Type the date below your name.
● Address your letter as “Dear Professor,”.
● Save your letter in your Documents folder. (Note: It’s important to save your file before
getting too far into your writing so that you don’t inadvertently lose any work. Then, Word
will autosave for you—if you have Word set to autosave, that is!)
o Name the file: Lastname_CIS101_A1
Step 2: Navigate, Select, and Use (Paragraphs 1–4)
Remember: Your goal is at the center of the DPP because it’s what each step in the process
(Navigate, Select, Use, and Review) is working toward. Before beginning the first step of the
DPP, you need to identify your goal, which is provided for you above in the “Your goal for this
assignment is to” section.
● Paragraph 1: Share a little bit about yourself. (2–4 sentences)

student so far. What have you liked? What have you wished was different? What are you
learning across your courses so far? (3–4 sentences)
● Paragraph 3: Share any lessons learned or goals that you have as they relate to
pursuing a college degree. (2–4 sentences)
CIS101 – Navigating a Digital World
● Paragraph 4: Search the Internet for two digital tools that are used for communicating
virtually—one web conferencing tool and one instant messaging tool. Describe both
tools and make sure you also share links to both websites. (2–4 sentences)
Step 3: Review (Paragraph 5)
● State how learning the digital proficiency process has helped you to think about and use
technology. (2–3 sentences)
