Required Tech Skills:
Most of our courses have minimal technical skills requirements. This course, however, is dedicated to new and emerging technology. You need to be proficiency with GoogleDocs (creating and sharing documents using the appropriate settings) and you need to be proficient in the various tasks that exploring new tools usually entail: creating new accounts; downloading and installing apps on your devices; troubleshooting problems when they arise and generally being resourceful and having a can-do attitude.
