My first few days

Hello all, allow me to introduce myself. I'm Keith Smith, recently hired at Cabrini Connection as the eLearning and Technology Coordinator. I've been a technology generalist for some years now and ever an advocate for bridging the digital divide and making technology access and availability a primary resource in the education of our youth. During the interview process my new boss Dan asked me to prepare a flash presentation outlining my first 30 days at CC, including ways I will help achieve our Technology and eLearning goals. That can be seen here. www.worldroad.com/cc In following my plan I am currently learning all that I can about Cabrini Connection and the Tutor/Mentor Connection and will be soon sharing my knowledge here on my blog and in other forums across the net.

It is my goal to support the advancement of knowledge of technology from fundamental skills to advance application understanding and usage. Our center is a place where users attend workshops, schedule tutoring and make use of the vast array of tutorials, applications and other software to promote their learning in preparation for success in the Information Age.

I look forward to advancing ideas and opportunities not only for the youth who come to our center but also youth, mentors, tutors and peer groups who can take advantage of our successes and learn from our missteps to provide a better future all who need just a hand up in order to be succeessful in the career path of their chosing.

I want our youth to believe in themselves, believe in us and believe in their future.

Your bloggs I've read by Mr. Smith seem to move me in a direction of wanting to give back to my community, I feel I need to help in some way. Can someone send me information on how I can be of assistance?
