Get Together With Technology (GTT) New Westminster/Vancouver!
Sponsored by the Canadian Council of the Blind
in partnership with
Vancouver Community College
People who are blind or partially sighted of all ages are invited to “Save the Dates” for these two sessions of the GTT Vancouver and New Westminster meetings where Facebook – using the GTT group will be demonstrated and discussed.
March/April 2018 Theme: Facebook – using the GTT group
Some folks struggle to use Facebook Groups as a means of seeking/gaining additional tech support from fellow GTT participants between meetings, so the upcoming GTT New Westminster and Vancouver meetings will work through the process of posting to, and gaining valuable information from the posts others send to the GTT Program Group on Facebook.
Who Should Attend?
- People who would like to know what the GTT Program Facebook Group is, why we might be interested and the value it can bring to the tech support experience;
- People who want to know what is involved in finding and reading the GTT Program Facebook posts, and posting questions and/or responses to the Group;
- People interested in learning how to start and manage a Facebook Group;
- People who want peer assistance with other assistive technology.
