Event Details

The City of Charlotte and the Knight School of Communication at Queens are offering free digital skills workshops designed to strengthen communication within neighborhoods on Thursday, March 13, 2014. Residents can choose from one of three workshop times:  9-10 am, 10-11 am and 1-2 pm.

Each one-hour workshop offers one-on-one training with a student trainer, for any community members interested in taking a deeper dive into social media tools like Facebook, or needing help with other basic technology skills. This is hands-on training for neighborhood residents; participants will have access to a computer and be able to work intensively with a trainer.  The workshops are open to individuals needing basic or intermediate computer training, and help with a variety of digital communication tools. Faculty and students from the Knight School of Communication will provide personalized instruction during each workshop.

All workshops are scheduled for Thursday, March 13 in the Knight-Crane Convergence Laboratory. The laboratory is in Room 110 of the Dana Building on the Queens University of Charlotte campus, located at 1900 Selwyn Avenue. Attendance is limited to 24 participants, and neighborhoods are encouraged to send two representatives. To register, click on the gold "Registration" button. Remember to choose a workshop time: 9-10 am, 10-11 am or 1-2 pm.

The Digital Skills Workshop for Neighborhoods is one of several Knight School initiatives designed to strengthen digital and media literacy in Charlotte. The Knight School is supported by The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. For more information about digital literacy in Charlotte, visit the website.
