Benefits of Technology
More about Cassandra
It is my goal to transform the learning experience with each and every client I see. Individual instruction is tailored based on the student's unique interests, priorities, pace and ability. I take the notes for you so you can focus on learning your device "hands on" and to help you retain what you have learned.
I believe that a great teacher has the "heart" of a teacher, makes learning fun and easy and inspires you to want to learn more. My goal is to encourage and empower you to embrace technology so that you too can eagerly participate in, what I call the "Transformation Age." This is what truly inspires me!
I began my technology career in Silicon Valley in 1990 and later formed my own technology consulting company in 1998. I was a business analyst, project manager and technology consultant for many large corporations including LSI Logic, DHL Airways, Perkin Elmer, Bank of America and Pacific Bell Internet.
In 2003 I moved to Palm Springs, California and continued my consulting business. In 2011, I formed computer classes at the Joslyn Center in Palm Desert, California, as well as at the Osher Institute at Cal State University, San Bernardino, Palm Desert campus. In 2012 I became certified as an Apple Support Professional and joined the Apple Consultants Network.
I have conducted technology workshops at various organizations/clubs across the Coachella Valley including The Vintage Club, The La Quinta Rotary Club, Sun City Palm Desert and many others.
I have a passion for technology but only in terms of what it can do to benefit and transform our lives. I see technology as simply a tool to improve our lives. My mission is to empower students to overcome their self imposed fears surrounding technology, to teach them how to connect with family and friends, and to actually have fun learning to use the most relevant technology tools available today.
As a way to provide a broad overview of technology, I have created a 3 hour lecture/video presentation with an overview of technology concepts, tools and options called the Benefits of Technology which is regularly updated to reflect the changing technology landscape. We discuss exponential growth, crossing the digital barrier, the smartphone revolution, exciting advances in medicine combined with the use of technology, artificial intelligence, driverless cars and more.
The purpose of this presentation is to not only inform but to also help inspire Seniors (and all ages) to embrace technology, and help encourage and motivate them to take the next step in their education and to use these modern tools to transform their lives.
