Looking to provide basic computer training for an adult audience? Learn more about the My PC Series, a completely free and fun, hands-on, jargon-free curriculum of computer classes developed by Microsoft for adult learners that aims to make this challenge a bit easier.
This new curriculum centers on Windows® 7 and Windows Live™ Essentials and is based on extensive audience and instructional research about how less tech-savvy adults want to learn new computer skills.
The webinar includes an overview of the research behind the program, workshops used to teach basic computer and photo-editing skills, resources offered, and feedback from libraries already offering the My PC Series workshops. The webinar will strive to help you understand how the My PC curriculum could be applied at your library or organization.
