Practice your tech skills at home!
Goodwill Community Foundation has an outstanding website, www.gcflearnfree.org, that has self-paced instruction and videos on everything from creating a brochure in Microsoft Publisher to adjusting your privacy settings on Facebook. You can also create an account and register for free online classes, which earn you accredited Continuing Education Units and a Certificate of Completion! Over two million people have expanded their repertoires wtih GCFLearnFree.org. Give it a try!
If you're the son or daughter of a parent who is just starting to dabble in tech, consider sending them a Tech Support Care Package from Google. Topics include: Change Your Desktop Background; Copy & Paste; and Find Stock Quotes. It's easy! Just check the boxes to indicate who you're sending to, which video(s) your parents would find most useful, and send. Nothing says "I love you Ma" like a Tech Support Care Package.
Of course we still want to see you here in our free computer classes at the Community Technology Center, but it's also a good idea to practice what you've learned and share what you know with others. Have fun and happy online learning!
