Snowboard Shop is a curriculum that will teach a student to use Google services such as Docs, Sheets, Gmail and Calendar. This is a very useful tool to help students create a faux "shop itinerary" as they utilize the free resources available with a Google account.

This curriculum is guided by instructional videos as well as written instructions, and graded by the teacher. Students will access Snowboard Shop by clicking the icon containing the snowboarder.

The Snowboard Shop module utilizes a technology-based, student-driven, project-based curriculum where students use the G-Suite tools and applications to gain expertise in developing artifacts and creating graphic design components for their shop. Students will make decisions and complete comprehensive projects.

Most lessons in the course are business centered with a creative flair. The pacing of the module can easily be adapted based on the preferences of the classroom or computer teacher and time restraints of the class. Although most assignments are written for individual completion, tasks may be assigned to teams to facilitate greater student communication, collaboration, and critical thinking.

The Snowboard Shop module is divided into nine concepts, each with varying numbers of lessons. Each lesson includes two student modalities and an engaging video that introduces the material and demonstrates step-by-step instructions for completing the artifacts. These videos can be projected by teachers, or assigned to students to refer back to throughout the completion of their assignments.

Students “create” their own Snowboard Shop as they journey through each concept and lesson. Snowboard Shop lessons include the following student modalities:

ENGAGE: These brief introductions cultivate interest, introduce new ideas, and get students excited about completing the challenge ahead.

EXPLAIN: Step-by-step instructions guide students in using G Suite tools to create original artifacts related to their Snowboard Shop.
