The Intel® Education Help Guide is a flexible resource for teachers and students.

Teacher Demonstrations: Before beginning a project, model how to use the Help Guide for a skill that students will need during the project and encourage students to experiment with related skills. For example:
Creation of Skill Challenges: Help students explore and develop new technology literacy skills by presenting short prompts and allowing students to browse the Help Guide skill groups to learn how to complete the skills. For example:
