Marie Jobling, Executive Director of the Community Living Campaign, will lead a dialogue about how the Internet - and computers that fit in our pockets - can enrich our lives (and drive us crazy).

Ms.Jobling will highlight existing resources for free, or low-cost internet access, as well as for basic training, and one-to one-tutoring.

She will also include quick demos of Facebook, Skype and other internet and social media sites. Lastly, and importantly, she will share how technology is helping those of us with vision and hearing loss and other disabilities stay connected and engaged in our world.

Participants will get a chance to try out various tablets as well as other tools for access. There will be something for everyone, whether you love or hate this new world of on-line connections.
