Webinar: Managing a Technology Education Program

Education and skills-building are crucial to creating digital inclusion. Nearly 50 percent of non-internet users cite “I am not comfortable using a computer” as their reason for not engaging with digital tools and resources.

Join us for a conversation on managing and growing a technology education program. To be successful, you’ll need curriculum, classroom space, computers, volunteers, strong project management skills, and of course marketing to bring in the learners! We’ll discuss how to combine thoughtful, forward-thinking strategies with easy-to-implement tactics. Facing limited budgets and resources? We’ll share many helpful resources along the way.

This webinar is part of NTEN’s Digital Inclusion Fellowship program, aimed at supporting digital inclusion initiatives, sharing best practices, and showcasing digital inclusion programs. You do not need to be a Fellow to attend; all are invited.
