Digital Literacy & Skills, what does it all mean? What can you, the community, expect from our new agent Isaac Madren’s role? Simply put, he is available to assist the general public, farmers, and small business owners alike in “working smarter, not harder” by using digital/technology skills.

  • Selecting the right technology to meet your needs
  • Financial spreadsheets
  • Virus Protection Education
  • Basic Website Building
  • Online Shopping Safety
  • Navigating the Web
  • New Computer/Electronic Device Set up
  • Precision Ag. Education

Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices for comfort and safety.
