The aim of Tech Savvy Projects is for members to complete a project of interest using information technology. This proved challenging in our first month when the WiFi modem in our room didn’t cope with the demand, however we’ve made a transition to smaller groups and some one to one sessions so WiFi difficulties have become less of an issue. Members come in with their devices and work quietly away at their chosen project, with support from others in the group. We use the front screen to project and discuss progress on family trees on ancestry.com or examples of other work completed. Some members come to one of the two Tuesday afternoon - Family History and Other Projects - some stay all afternoon, taking time out from other demands to purse their project, whether it is family history, a blog, or a slide show. We have moved to a more relaxed learning environment - we even had Mozart playing quietly in the background through the sound bar at last Thursday’s session!
