Spotlight on Technical Education in a Digital World
For any of us wanting to improve our technical skills or to learn a whole new subject, there are many resources available, and they are free! All we need to do is to look to our libraries. Each of our county public library systems has a host of technical classes on almost any technical topic. And in Montgomery County there is a new project called Senior Planet (see below).which is offering classes and lectures in several local libraries and senior centers.
