Northstar featured on KARE 11

KARE 11's Heidi Wigdahl visited our computer lab at Open Door - Midway this week for a TV news feature on our digital literacy work.

Coordinator Dani Brown, learner Dale Lande (pictured below) and Executive Director Eric Nesheim spoke about Northstar Digital Literacy Assessments, the ever-expanding definition of literacy and the feeling of accomplishment that comes with learning new skills.

"I've really grown quite a bit," says Lande, who didn't know how to text or email before coming to Dani's class. He has now earned two certificates—basic computer skills and internet basics—and is growing more and more comfortable using a phone, tablet and computer.
