Every Problem Is Now a Technology Problem

Hybrid Event
April 24: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Covid Era created new challenges (and opportunities!) for technology education work. Every problem turned into a technology problem, and issues of access and the digital divide became very imposing, very rapidly. What made a difference? Library technologist and author Jessamyn West talks about the Vermont public library response.
