iConnect – Skills for Working with Internet Beginners
Today as more and more activities go online, many of us need to help people who are uncomfortable with the Internet navigate websites, e-mail programs and other computer basics. The iConnect program is a half day workshop that teaches skills for communicating efficiently and effectively with Internet beginners as you help them perform basic online tasks. Participants will learn how to walk a beginner through these tasks in a way that sets them up to continue on to learn digital skills on their own.
For the Internet beginners you connect with at work, in your family, in your community and as your friends, you can be their best bridge into the online world – learn how through an iConnect workshop.
