Computers are wonderful and useful but how much do you know about using a computer and technology? I’ve discovered that many of us know only the bare minimum when it comes to our technology. Do you know what you have? Do you know the shortcuts you can use?


What IS it?!

What device or devices do you have? Do you have any experience with them? Is this your first time using this brand? No matter what, we will get through this and figure it out. There are a lot of devices out there with a lot of differences between them.

A tablet is thought of like a pad of paper. It has a front, the screen, and a back. The screen is the part you type, draw, etc on with your fingers. There are many brands and styles of tablets, some even come with special pens you can use on them. If they do not come with one, you can find one at Best Buy, Walmart, or Amazon. Tablet pens help with your writing, drawing, and other basic skills that one would use with a pad of paper and a pen or pencil.
