Technology fair to help families improve digital literacy

By the Notebook on Apr 26, 2013 12:32 PM

Interested in improving your computer skills? As part of Comcast Cares Day and Philly Tech Week, the School District of Philadelphia, Comcast, and KEYSPOT are co-sponsoring a free Digital Resource Fair tomorrow, April 27, for students and families.

Fairgoers can get one-on-one computer assistance and attend 30-minute workshops to help with job searches, finances, and understanding computer basics. Sponsors said they hope that improving computer skills will increase academic performance and financial literacy among students and families. Computers will be available for everyone to use, and organizers will raffle off a netbook computer.

The fair, which is open to the public, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the atrium of the School District's headquarters,  440 N. Broad St.

There's no doubt that by improving computer skills they will eventually increase the academic performance among both students and families. For those students interested in technology, they should also consider the workflow management systems, which are probably the most valuable tools they should take advantage of during the literacy process.
