PCC honor society students offer free computer training to K-12 families on January 28

With the challenge of online learning for local elementary through high school age students, Piedmont Community College’s (PCC) Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society students are finding a way to help with a free Chromebook online training seminar scheduled for Thursday, January 28 at 7 p.m.

This event is open to all Caswell County students, as well as their families, and offers an opportunity to speak to a PCC student about various tip and tricks when it comes to online learning and using a Chromebook to the best of its ability.

Families can join the meeting through Google Meets at https://meet.google.com/orx-acgi-mbi.

During the online seminar, PTK members will offer a presentation overviewing the basics of using a Chromebook. The PCC students will go in depth about:

• Logging in to Caswell County School sites

• Using various functions on the keyboard

• Creating an avatar

• Changing backgrounds on screen

The first 100 families to login to the January 28 training will also be given a free flash drive (one per household), and instructions on how to use this device most effectively.

PTK member Jacob Famer shares, “With a heightened set of skills, students will be able to use the flash drives to do schoolwork and be able to easily upload the work they did
