Last week I got to teach a class on social media at our favorite library. My most recent teaching experience has been teaching religion to fifth- and sixth-graders, so talking about a subject to a group who actually wants to learn about it was a nice change. Whether or not you took the class, you're welcome to download a copy of the presentation I used.
Last week's class was the first in a series of four. The second session, Thursday, March 10, will be Getting Started in Blogging. Most of our time will be spent on learning Blogger, but probably with a quick look at WordPress, too. Then we'll go to Getting Started with Facebook on March 17 and Getting Started with Twitter on March 24. Follow those links to register for each class.
The social networking series will be followed by three classes on using Microsoft Office applications: Getting Started with Microsoft Word 2010 will be on March 31; Getting Started with Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 on April 7, and Getting Started with Microsoft Excel 2010 on April 14.
If you have any questions about social media or Microsoft Office, or if you have suggestions for what we should cover in a class, just post a comment below and I'll respond.
