4.2 How digitally curious are you?

The following activities give you an opportunity to be curious with a range of tools, and to think about how you approach digital tasks. There are no detailed instructions, which is deliberate.

Timing: 10 minutes

The only instruction for this activity is visit the Freerice site and explore it. NB You do not need to create an account unless you wish to do so.

How did you feel?

  1. I wasn’t sure how to do this, and didn’t do it

  3. I wasn’t sure what I needed to do, but just played till I worked it out

  5. Fine, I knew what I needed to do
