A 2015 Pew Research Poll found 68% of Americans own a smartphone (a 33% increase from 2011) and 45% own a tablet. How many of you feel left behind in technology or are uncomfortable using your own device? As quickly as technology changes, we all feel that way sometimes. Getting your first laptop or smart device can be overwhelming and there is a learning curve. It takes time to play around and get a feel for any new product. Often times, we do not want to mess something up or do something that we are not able to fix. If this is you, we are here to help! Hunt County AgriLife Extension is hosting an introductory series on understanding technology, specifically Internet, email, and smart device apps.
This series will be geared toward individuals who are new to smart devices (or laptops/computers) and need assistance understanding and using their devices. Set-up as four, one-hour sessions, we will cover introductory basics, Internet and email use, popular apps, social media, and online safety. Sessions will be held each Wednesday in December from 1:30 – 2:30 pm at the Hunt County Extension Office, 2217 Washington Street, Greenville, TX. Attendees will need to bring their own Wi-Fi capable device (laptop, smart phone, or tablet). The first session will be Wednesday, December 7th. This will be a welcoming and fun learning environment where no question is too basic. This series is free of charge and everyone is welcome to come and learn. Sessions will focus on specific (but flexible) topics, independent of each other.
As always, if you have questions, concerns, or just want to chat, please feel free to come by the Hunt County AgriLife Extension office, 2217 Washington Street, Greenville, Texas, 75401, call (903) 455-9885, or email Sarah.Latham@ag.tamu.edu.
