EDS Unit 3 (Communication) with embedded English tasks
Slides designed to support delivery of Gateway's EDSQ (Essential Digital Skills Qualification), Unit 3, at Entry Level and Level 1, with embedded Functional Skills English activities at L1 and L2. This set of slides covers skills from section 3 of the standards (Communication) which covers email, video-calling, etc. The main focus of the slides is communicating via email. Also includes many useful links to Wordwall quizzes and other online learning applications.
This is part three of a series of very comprehensive resources covering almost every aspect the Essential Digital Skills (EDS) standards. Written for Gateway qualifications but can be used with any awarding organisation. Note the EDS standards cover only Entry (a combination of skills at E1, E2 and E3) and Level 1. The embedded English includes discussion, checking and commenting on a sample email (tone, punctuation, etc.) and looking at the the mark sheet, and using technical vocabulary. The embedded English ideas are so good that the slides would also be very useful and usable if you are teaching discrete Functional Skills English.
