Helen Linda is just wrapping up her presentation, “How to Communicate Effectively With Techies” and it’s awesome. She showed us some great prevention techniques to deal with tech problems before they happen. She also shared some great software such as screen shot and casting software. Beyond that she pointed out some great learning opportunities such as w3schools or codecademy. Her presentation will be posted soon to NELA’s conference site.
Her upbeat presentation aimed to help us become more comfortable with technology. Her mantra has been “attitude” during this presentation. In fact, it’s about keeping an open attitude – open to trying new tools, open to learning new trends, open to learning how IT operates and open to discovering what you can do with technology. To sum up her presentation: “Technology is one of the major tools used by information professionals. It is in our interest to become familiar and more confident with technology.”
Rock on Helen!
