It’s Computers All The Way Down: Navigating the Digital Divide in the COVID Era
Jessamyn West will be speaking at CDLC!
Jessamyn West is a Vermont librarian who has been speaking and writing about the intersection of technology and civic engagement since 1996. You can learn more about her extensive work on her professional website.
Library technologist Jessamyn West will discuss the ways in which this past two years created new challenges (and opportunities!) for technology education work. It seemed that every problem turned into a technology problem and issues of access and the digital divide became very imposing, very rapidly. She’ll discuss the ups and downs of remote tech support and share some things that made a difference.
This is a hybrid event, so you can register to see the presentation in person or online. The in-person location is the large auditorium in our new space at 800 Troy Schenectady Road, Latham, NY. The auditorium has ventilation upgrades and room to distance.
