Technology can be a bit threatening if you’re not familiar with it.
Sometimes a tutor can help.
Jim Olson is live in Minot to tell us about a program designed to help senior citizens learn some tech basics.
The idea is to make the amazing world of the internet and computers and smart phones more accessible for people who might be intimidated by it.
Minot Public Library has a host of technology education, including tech-tutors.
The free technology assistance offers one-on-one computer help.
The tutors help with anything from basic settings to eBooks and other resources all the way to navigating genealogy links.
Mary Ann Schimke attended a tutor event at the Parker Senior Center.
She calls the tutors far more helpful than googling about each of her devices.
<<(Mary Ann Schimke, Minot) “I asked on here, ‘how do I do, whatever, on my laptop?’ Then I’ll go on my laptop and say, ‘how do I do this on my iPad?’ These guys are a lot more helpful than trying to do that.”>>
The library in Minot will also be hosting a ‘Tech Talk’ on tomorrow night at 6.
The topic will be focused around what to look for in your holiday tech purchases.
