Technology Learning for Extension Staff
Introduction
"Quick Bytes" are bite-sized introductions to a wide variety of today's technology. A new Quick Byte unit will be posted each Thursday. You will finish each quick and fun unit having seen each technology with your own eyes, learned some potential uses for it, and knowing where to get more information. Often there will be an activity to allow for hands-on exploration. Comments and discussion are strongly encouraged!
