Pocatello’s Marshall Public Library has now opened registration for a series of classes for the beginning Internet user and has also started an innovative Book a Techie program. Both the computer classes and Book a Techie are geared towards adults over 50 who have little to no computer experience.
The computer classes are taught in a traditional classroom format with small groups of learners, while Book a Techie is one-on-one instruction. Volunteer technology coach and Idaho State University business informatics student Tricia Roberts is excited to share her love of technology with others, especially older beginners. In the beginning Internet class, Tricia will help students learn email, how to use the Internet safely, and basic research skills.
If you have a little technology skill but still have questions about how to use your own computer, tablet, or phone, working with Tricia through Book a Techie will help you to become more comfortable and proficient.
These classes are free and open to the public. If you are interested in being either a student or a volunteer instructor, please call Amy at 232-1263 extension 106.
