The one-on-one computer training offered at the computer- learning centre in the Chatham-Kent Public library (CKPL) is a two-way learning street for youth worker Lisa Vander Weide. The recent University of Windsor graduate started teaching computer skills through the CKPL Community Access Program (CAP) two weeks ago. “I’ve gained skills that I haven’t expected to, like marketing, training and promotions,” she said. “For me that’s not anything I had in my (masters of sociology) educational skills.” Vander Weide is enjoying watching her students evolve from users intimidated by computer technology to ones who are excited about exploring the Internet, social media sites, downloading photos and organizing their desktops.
