Please join MAP for Nonprofits and friends as we mark the end of an era, and say goodbye to MAP TechWorks. Although this nonprofit technology learning and networking program has been treasured by the community, MAP is unfortunately no longer able to manage and support it. However, the Listserve and some of our website content will live on! We will share details of plans to hand off some of the activities and assets, and raise a toast to all of the people who have made this group thrive. Delicious appetizers are MAP’s treat, and beverages are available for purchase.

Girls in Tech does a great job of creating events for all the she-geeks out there, including those amazing ABE teachers who bring tech into the classroom.  To help Girls in Tech get in touch with each other and check event details they have created a Meetup Group

Often times when people ask me for recommendations about what to purchase in regards to technology I am wary, not only because I want to make a recommendation for something that works well for them but also because at some point someone will have to fix it. Much like a car, a computer needs maintaince and while YouTube is great for people who are used to taking things apart but not all our students are comfortable trying to remove a laptop keyboard cover or replacing a hard drive. Enter the the caring folks at the Fix- It Tech Event.

Tis the season for those of us who celebrate Christmas to put away the stockings and pack up the Christmas lights. This year before everything gets stuffed in the attic for another 351 days, consider keeping out your Christmas tree light timer. What for? You may ask.  For your COW of course.

Distance learning is helping Minnesota's adult learners master basic skills. There's a lot of learning going on with Skills Tutor.

It's back-to-school time again!  Here's a message all our learners - adults and children, students and teachers - need to hear and take to heart:  You Can Learn Anything.

Watch it, share it, believe it!

CTEP Members

Every year, CTEP members choose community action projects where they make a contribution to bridging the digital divide. On August 1, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Wilder Foundation, CTEP members will share their accomplishments and struggles in creating community change.

 

It's no secret that some of our students may be part of the WIC program. What may be surprising is that state government may be turning to an app to help people on the program. Last month Justine Brown of Government Technology reported that Pennsylvania is considering creating a mobile app for WIC Payments. The belief is that it will make the process easier and people will buy healthier food choices.
