You found me! I’m so excited. Landing on this web page brings you one step closer to your successful journey as a digital citizen of the 21st century. Jackson College is here to help you on this journey, from learning how to turn a computer on and using a mouse and keyboard, through surfing the web and emailing files, and to creating documents and presentations with productivity software (and how to find those files again!) Technology literacy is fast becoming a critical foundational skill of our present and future, as many courses now use technology to learn content in the course. Let us help you learn how to use a computer, so that you can use computers to learn math, writing, reading and many other disciplines. Not sure where to start? We can help with that too! We have an assessment that will help you get started at the right level…and a complete pathway to help you advance and be successful. I can’t wait to meet you!
