Probably our smallest U3A group this year, Tech Savvy Projects - Community Projects will continue next year, providing one to one support for members keen to develop computer skills to complete projects they have taken on (or would like to take on) as part of their volunteer work. Robyn Desmier from Collectors had a clear objective in mind this year - being able to present the annual power point presentation with background music celebrating the monthly collections for the Collectors group. Robyn is now adding photos and music from November's Christmas themed session to the power point presentation she presented to the group in November. Robyn has developed many related skills along the way. Congratulations Robyn!
Are you having a problem with a project you are working on using computers as a volunteer for U3A or other community group? Book in to Tech Savvy Projects - Community Projects for help to develop the 'tech savvy' skills you need. You just need to have a project idea in mind so that there is a clear objective for your learning and an outcome at the end. The Tech Savvy Community Projects session is on the third Friday from 1 to 4 - you can book a dedicated time slot with Bev Lee firstname.lastname@example.org and can stay to work on your project in the company of others for as long as you like.
Would you like to develop new computer skills to help you to work on a community project?
Our first Community Projects' class member Robyn volunteered to take the photographs at Collectors this year, Her aim? To compile a presentation of each month's collection for viewing by the Collectors group at the final session for the year. Robyn has learnt lots of skills related to working with photographs and preparing power point presentations and recently presented a mid-project Power Point presentation to the Collectors group. Robyn's success was evident in Collectors' last newsletter report ... "Robyn showed a slide show of our first four months of Collectors. We were so impressed we asked her to show them again. Many thanks, Robyn... We are looking forward to seeing the slide show of our whole year, complete with music, in November".
If you are working on a 'community project' involving computer skills to complete and would like some support, contact Bev at email@example.com to book in!
