CPD Primary and Secondary

Computing for the Terrified

As part of the support that the Computing Hub is offering, we are starting a series of short sessions on a Wednesday evening from 7 – 7.30pm which we are calling ‘Computing for the Terrified’. These sessions are designed for anyone who wants to know more about particular topics such as keyboard hacks, cloud computing and keeping yourself safe online. The format will be a short presentation, led by Steve Woods (our Computing Hub guru) followed by a Q&A session where you can ask all those questions you want to know, but have never felt confident to ask. There is no charge and you can attend any number of the presentations.
