The Education committee is writing new articles to help you begin your new year by learning more about the technology devices you use. When selecting article topics, we used the results of the TVCUC Survey from last year and input from FLS. We will identify the articles as Novice Level or Intermediate Level so that you have a better idea of what is being presented. We are also populating an archive of many “How-To” articles.
If you like the new format or if you have a technology topic you’d like us to research and write about, email our Education Committee chair. We look forward to helping you continue to learn and be more confident in the use of technology.
