The My PC Series is a free set of workshops designed for adult learners. Perfect for library patrons and staff, these workshops use Windows®7 and Windows Live™ Essentials to teach basic PC and digital photography skills.
Developed by Microsoft, the ten 1-hour workshops and corresponding series of eight 3-hour workshops are based on extensive research about how less tech-savvy adults learn new computer skills. Hands-on workshops take a unique, jargon-free approach to teaching a variety of ‘getting started’ topics, including Getting Started with Windows 7.
Libraries have access to free class materials, including a teacher guide, PowerPoint® slides, student handouts, and support materials to help launch and market their Windows 7 training efforts. Workshop samples, program overview, and program roadmaps for all workshops are available in the My PC Series Evaluation Toolkit. Stay tuned for news of a webinar in July to showcase tips and tricks for using this curriculum in your library.
