New Free In Person Technology Training Workshops – You CAN Do I.T.!

2016 June 1

How much RAM should I buy? Do I need one DIMM or two? How can I protect myself from a ransomware attack? If you’re unsure of how to answer these questions, don’t fret, because we’re back with another round of You Can Do I.T. workshops specifically focused on basic computer hardware and software skills.

Librarians at the You Can Do I.T. workshop in Wolfforth work together to disassemble an old computer.

In early May, the Amarillo Public Library, City of Wolfforth Library, and the Llano Public Library hosted new full-day workshops for their staff and library staff in the surrounding area that focus on demystifying what is “under the computer hood”. In the morning, participants opened, identified, and removed components of the computer hardware; during the afternoon, participants learned about operating systems and computer security best practices.

 

We are thrilled to bring back Carson Block as the trainer for these new workshops; they are hands-on, interactive, and practical. Carson returns with his enthusiasm for teaching and his ability to translate technical concepts into accessible and implementable recommendations.  Over the summer we will be fine-tuning the workshop to bring it to eight more locations around Texas in September and October.

 

Check out our visual diary of the workshop on tour this Spring and then sign-up for our You Can Do I.T. email list to be notified of new dates as well as helpful technology tips, webinars, and other opportunities. These workshops are a direct response to hearing from our small Texas libraries that you need this training; as we continue to build this program, please let us know how else we can help. We’re here to help you do I.T.! Contact Cindy Fisher at 800-252-9386 (toll-free in Texas) or cfisher@tsl.texas.gov.
