During Winter Seminar Days at MCC, I held a breakout session called “The Secret Technology Club” and I just finished a set of slides to mimic the presentation. Here’s the description:
The Secret Technology Club: If you think that technology power-users have a whole bunch of “secret” tricks and shortcut, you might be right. We’ve been immersed in computer-use for decades now, but very few of us have had much formal training. We learn through trial and error, but it’s difficult to learn what you don’t know exists! If you suspect you’ve fallen behind and would like to fill some of those silly technology gaps, this is for you. This will be a random assortment of tips and tricks for a variety of programs and web applications. You can become a member of the “Secret Technology Club” by learning the secret technology handshakes.
You might be surprised by what you don’t know. I learn something new every time I prepare for this presentation.
Here are the slides for The Secret Technology Club.
I’d encourage you to “play along” and try out all the tips as you go through the slides.
