Members of Lambda Kappa Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. were asked to assist Sonya Shepherd, Learning Commons Director, by providing free tutorials to the Statesboro community and GSU parents on how to scan pictures, and create Facebook and Twitter accounts. We had approximately 15 participants scattered throughout the day. All of which were excited and happy we were providing this service.
The tutorials were more extensive than what we imagined them to be. They averaged about 2 hours per person or group of two. Participants wanted detailed assistance on how to use their printer/scanner at home so they can upload and save pictures to jump drives. They wanted to know how to save pictures and other information to jump drives. They also wanted to know more about how to set their privacy settings in Facebook. Some wanted to know how to save their pictures from their digital cameras onto their computers. A few participants already had Facebook and/or Twitter accounts but wanted to know what all they could do with them.
I want to thank my colleagues Cynthia, Peggy E, and Mary Margaret for helping me to plan and publicize our Intergeneration Day Celebration event. I also want to thank my undergraduate sorors for assisting us throughout the day.
We hope to offer similar workshops to the community in the future. Please stay tuned…
