NETSURFERS – GET YOUR TRAINING WITH OUR ACADEMY!
Do you have a friend or family member that you want to help get to grips with the wonderful world of computers and the Internet?
Is there someone you know who has just bought a Computer or Tablet, or thinking about it, but you know they are struggling to understand how to use it effectively?
There is so much to learn about computers and technology these days that it is difficult to know where to start! Do you go to college to progress to a qualification, do you buy books and try and understand from the theory, or do you get help from a friend or just struggle on by yourself and learn by ‘trial and error’?
What type of computer training is best?
Personal, One-to-one Training
We believe that personal, one-to-one computer training is best. We can do the training in the learner’s own home, using the computer they are familiar with, and at their own pace, with time to ask questions when required.
IT Training in a Group
Some people prefer to take a group computer training class. This is good as it may be more structured that personal training, and may lead to a recognised qualification which could help with employment. However, sometimes a group class can’t take into account the different skill levels of the students, and the pace may be too fast (or too slow!) for some of them, leading to a loss of motivation.
Books or Videos
There are a huge selection of videos and books available to teach people about computers and technology (and just about any other subject!!). Videos and books are great to enable the student to be able to go back over a topic until they understand, and may be useful in demonstrating particular operations that the student can then practice. Trouble is, there are so many videos and books on the market, how do you know which is best? There are also lots of ‘reviews’ of training material available on-line, but how do you trust what is said about a particular product?
Very similar to one-to-one training, personal coaching can be employed, but not necessarily in the student’s home. Coaching can be done in a number of ways, by simple availability for answering questions via email, by personal guidance through structured lessons, with marking of assignments if required, or by wider group coaching. All these techniques have their benefits and disadvantages, but here you are making use of the expertise of the coach in just a personal way as if they were at home with you giving you personal tuition.
