BHC offering free computer classes in Kewanee Fri, 24 Oct 2014 21:20:27 +0000 Continue reading ]]> CBlack Hawk College and its partners have received funding to help area residents become more skilled with technology.

Thanks to the Tech Savvy program, the public can learn basic computer skills at no cost at two sites – the college’s Community Education Center in downtown Kewanee and now at the Wethersfield Elementary Learning Center (library). Abilities Plus is a partner as well and focuses on services to the disabled.

“We need to become more skilled in new technologies in order to compete in the global economy,” said Russell Medley of the Kewanee Economic Development Corporation.

“We now have special computer literacy and technology classes to help area residents learn everything from computer basics to searching for jobs on the Internet to digital photography,” said David Harris, Community Education Center coordinator. “And, because of grant support and community volunteers, there is no fee to enroll.”

The Tech Savvy classes at the Community Education Center are Monday-Thursday from 5-7:30 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 1-4 p.m. At the Wethersfield library, classes meet Monday-Thursday from 4-7 p.m.

The basic computer courses at both locations use advanced computer programs to individualize instruction on computer hardware, Windows, the Internet, e-mail  and multiple courses in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

“Wethersfield is pleased to be able to join with Black Hawk College to bring computer literacy classes to this area,” said Janean Friedman, Wethersfield Elementary School principal. “We serve adults, of course, but we have a unique lab environment especially enjoyable to kids.”

Both sites also are planning specialized computer classes on hot topics such as using a smart phone and expanding into web commerce. At the Community Education Center, monthly technology forums for the public will discuss the latest developments for business, consumers and job growth.

For more information about classes at Wethersfield or the Community Education Center or to get involved, contact David Harris at Black Hawk College at 309-854-1875.
