Citizens in a Connected Age Workshop Saturday, March 5
Montpelier, VT – The e-Vermont Community Broadband Project is sponsoring a technology workshop on March 5, 2011, entitled, Citizens in a Connected Age. Located at Lyndon State College in Lyndonville, Vermont, the full-day workshop will offer a variety of courses on topics such as Advanced Social Media, Troubleshooting Technology, Digital Storytelling and No Money Marketing.
“The Citizens in a Connected Age workshop” will teach the best strategies for using online resources and tools, by instructors that are technology and computer experts,” stated Project Director Helen Labun-Jordan. “And unique to this workshop is a train-the-trainer theme, encouraging participants to teach citizens in their own towns about the benefits of broadband technology.”
Although the e-Vermont Community Broadband Project works with selected towns across Vermont, any Vermonter with basic computer skills may attend this workshop. The fee to register is $12 and includes course offerings, refreshments and lunch.
