Pastorelle John-image appears with permissionOnline Communication-copyright Chaay_tee/AdobeStock.comAlthough the media calls this "social distancing," we can thank the many technologies available to us for being able to turn that into simply physical distancing while we can maintain our social connections. John Pastorelle of St. Michael IT Solutions will conduct an introductory workshop via Zoom and will review the "ABZs" of crucial cyber/technology concepts. Leveraging the Zoom platform, he will highlight the "technological tools and best practices" to ensure a comfortable, safe and productive online experience while "seeing" your friends, families and co-workers. This live, workshop-style program allows for specific questions to be answered on the spot.
