980 Winter 2019 Technology at Your Service
Thursday, 2:15–3:40, Feb. 14
United Christian Parish, Reston
Instructor: Diane Boyd

Technology is everywhere. Most of us have at least of one of these devices: personal computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet, or electronic virtual assistant like Alexa. What’s your comfort level? Do you feel you are getting the most out of your devices? Mastering a device and a few programs (also called “apps”) can bring new activities and knowledge to your doorstep: keep in touch with friends, enjoy free books and music, visit virtual museums, and take care of everyday business tasks. This session will discuss and compare available devices and explain how to get Internet service. Participants will explore types of available programs and websites, and we will walk through using technology to plan a visit to Colmar, a historic French town on the Alsace wine route. The instructor will offer suggestions on how to obtain help with your device whenever you need it, putting the Internet at your service.
Diane Boyd, PhD, is a social sciences researcher who uses technology to help answer clients’ questions. She has helped numerous colleagues and members of the public learn to use their devices to achieve personal and professional goals.
