The first go-round of Technology Talks went really well. In fact, it went so well that I will be offering a second session in March. If you wanted to try the first session, but were unable to make it, I would love for you to join us. The class will start over by discussing the basics of smart device usage (texting, emailing, navigation, etc.) and apps. We will meet at the Hunt County Extension office, 2217 Washington Street in downtown Greenville from 2:00 to 3:00 on March 1st, 8th, 22nd and 29th. Again, this series is geared toward individuals who are new to smart devices and/or need assistance understanding and using their device. Set-up as four, one-hour sessions, we will cover introductory basics, Internet and email use, popular apps, social media, and online safety. Attendees will need to bring their own Wi-Fi capable device (smart phone or tablet). This is 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.
The first session is still in progress and we are now discussing specific apps. If you have a basic understanding of your device but would like to learn more about Pinterest, Map My Walk, or My Fitness Pal, please join me January 11th, 18th, and 25th at the Hunt County Extension office at 1:30. We will be discussing a specific app each of those days. Smart devices can be extremely helpful when working to improve your health. Our January sessions will focus on apps that you can use on your health journey.
One thing I found out from the first session was most people have never taken the time to play around on their device so they end up never comfortable with it. If you are interested in the series but not available at the scheduled time, please email or call me. I truly enjoyed working with the individuals in the first session and I want to make the series available to everyone.
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.
