Goodman IT Pro has stepped up to the challenge of combatting the lack of knowledge when it comes to new technology. Technology has become so prevalent in our lives, it is a shame that so many people, especially the “Baby Boomers,” still don’t know how to use a search engine, send an e-mail or connect with friends and family on social media sites. This is becoming more and more imperative to know because social media seems to be the easiest and fastest way to view pictures of grandchildren, family or reconnect with friends from years past.
There are new ways to stay connected through social media emerging every day, and staying up to date with all of them can be extremely challenging. Wouldn’t it be great if someone would come to your home or business to help you learn all of the different ways that you could connect through social media?
Matthew Goodman of Goodman IT Pro has held tutoring sessions for individuals in the privacy of their homes, held classes for groups of people and consulted for businesses of all sizes for over 15 years. He has found a niche on educating people to use technology that poses difficulties in their day-to-day life, such as a cell phone, networking a home computer to printers and interconnecting multiple offices.
“I want to start offering educational classes in a group setting and one-on-one, in-home private tutoring. I feel the local library would be a great place to offer classes to individuals and groups,” said Goodman. “This will help a growing number of people in our community that are unfamiliar with how to navigate their way around a computer or other media device.”
Goodman said the goal is to familiarize people with the technology.
“I will help people learn how to perform web searches, participate in a video call, view and share pictures of their children, grandchildren, friends and family,” said Goodman. “There are a plethora of companies that will fix your computer problems for a fee, but I don’t know of anyone who will actually sit down with people to help them learn how to navigate their way around the World Wide Web and figure out all of the incredible things that are out there. That is where I come in.”
There have been a few people that have participated in the training classes offered by Goodman IT Pro that were afraid to turn on a computer at the start of the class, and by the end of class, they had the ability to surf the web, check their e-mail, video chat and start to participate in a multitude of social media. After a couple of classes, fear turns into excitement and power.
