Join us for webinars: Tuesday, Feb 12th @ 2pm, or Wednesday, Feb 13th @ 11:30am
The Blandin Foundation’s Minnesota Intelligent Rural Communities (MIRC) Digital Literacy training is a series of free self-guided lessons designed to teach basic computer skills within the context of job search and career enhancement. These skills are based on the skills defined by the Northstar Digital Literacy Task Force and cover: basic computer, Internet, email, word processing and the Microsoft Windows ™ Operating System.
The self-guided, scenario-based lessons provide learners with the opportunity to learn how to use a computer in a safe and supportive environment. These lessons are currently being used to provide digital literacy training to clients with minimal oversight required by ABE teachers, librarians, colleges and WorkForce Center staff.
In this webinar, you will learn:
• What skills are taught in the MIRC Digital Literacy training, • How can you access the lessons for clients who need basic computer skills, • How can you “quick link” to specific skills based on client needs, • What additional resources are provided and how these might be used in your organization, and • How the digital literacy training corresponds to the Creative Job Search Workshop and to the Northstar Digital Literacy Standards.
You will also learn about updates being made to the MIRC Digital Literacy Training and have the opportunity to view a demonstration of the lessons.
