Two opportunities to hang out with other people who care about communities, digital literacy, and digital inclusion - some from nonprofit tech community, some not; some national, some local!
RSVPs are requested, but conference registration is not required for these events! Free and open to all!
Building Bridges that Span the Digital Divide
NTEN CommTech Gathering
Thursday, April 11, 2013, 4-6pm (Central Time)
Hilton Minneapolis, The Gallery [1st Floor]
1001 Marquette Ave S, www.hilton.com/Minneapolis
Tens of thousands of nonprofit and library professionals work each day to bridge the digital divide, but where are the bridges between the professionals? We’re all so busy that it can be a challenge to step back and see what other people are doing that may be beneficial to our efforts to bring technology training and access to our communities. Join us during NTC where computer trainers, library staff, volunteers and program managers will share successes and challenges related to their work with digital inclusion, BTOP, and digital literacy training. Hear about national efforts to develop a resource portal that will help us all improve our programs.
By special arrangement with NTEN, this program event is free and open to locals and anyone interested, even if you're not attending the NTEN conference!
RSVP requested for planning purposes, not required. Walk-ins welcome.
Please join fellow TLC Members on October 26, 2012 for an interactive planning session. The needs of our communities for Internet access and technology literacy skills are great. We will gather to share ideas and identify the TLC actions that could benefit our community in the coming year.
