Why Knowing Your “Stuff” Is So Essential Now

There used to be a time where you had to carry around floppy discs everywhere, then CDs, then USBs, now you just drop it in your google docs and go. I still remember the days in college when you forgot your USB drive to print your paper at the computer lab or the file saved for your PowerPoint presentation. Now you don’t need any of those but you do have to know how to use google docs or DropBox or some other form of digital storage. While it is nice to not have to carry around anything you have to have the knowledge of how to use these resources. A lot of people may just say oh well and I don’t need to learn that but it is such a HUGE time saver once you learn. It makes it great to collaborate at meetings, share files to edit, have them available where ever you go, able to use to teach a lesson, and the list goes on and on.

Not only can “knowing your stuff” help with time but it can save you money. When you know how to do simple things on your computer you aren’t having to call the IT guy to fix it for you. There are always going to be things that you can’t fix or may just be out of your realm but so many of the little things can be resolved at home or in your office without having someone come out. Something as simple as a virus removal can be done in just a few minutes if you have the basic knowledge. If not, you will have to call someone or you may even think that your computer is fried and waste money on a new one.

Technology is fun! Often people find technology scary or boring and try to avoid it. If you learn just the basics you will realize that technology is there for our benefit and you can do so much more with it. With more knowledge about computers you can do better at your job, be more efficient, save money, and so much more. The possibilities are truly endless. We want to help you in the areas that you struggle and show you how great technology really is!
