Computer Training

At the Main Library of the Catawba County Library System in Newton, we are using the Microsoft Digital Literacy self-paced, online curriculum to teach basic computer skills. Participants come to the computer lab each week for 90 minutes for approximately 15 weeks. For the first 3 weeks, we used a laptop and computer projector to help them learn to navigate through the curriculum. Since then, they are working on their own during the class and staff is there to help them through any problems that they might have. Some of them are doing additional work at home. So far, it has been a great experience for the staff and the participants. For more information, contact Lynne Bolick Reed at lreed@catawbacountync.gov.

The Microsoft web site describes the curriculum:

"Welcome to the Microsoft Digital Literacy Curriculum. The goal of Digital Literacy is to teach and assess basic computer concepts and skills so that people can use computer technology in everyday life to develop new social and economic opportunities for themselves, their families, and their communities.Whether you are entirely new to computing or have some experience, this curriculum will help you develop a fundamental understanding of computers. From using the Internet, to sending e-mail, to creating a résumé, the Digital Literacy Curriculum helps you develop the essential skills you need to begin computing with confidence."
