April 16: Get your Head in the Cloud
Modern Tools for the Modern Editor
Do you want to use online editing programs but feel technologically overwhelmed? Don’t have time to learn a new method but want to stay engaged? Feel out-of-the-loop when it comes to Google’s web tools?
To an editor, online tools are now as crucial as the red pen. We know our skills, services and client relations can be improved by utilizing web programs, extensions and apps, but it’s not always clear which are best for editors in the NCR.
Ryan O’Connor will focus on the best and simplest ways for an editor to use Google’s new add-ins for Google Docs. Not only will you learn about modern, editor-friendly features, but you’ll come away with a solid understanding of how to use them in a professional setting.
Ryan is Chelsea Tech Guy to residents of Chelsea, Wakefield and Ottawa, a friendly and passionate professional who wants everyone to benefit from modern technology. His international experience as an ESL teacher, trainer and program leader allows him to combine his expertise in language and education with his technical prowess.
