Santa Fe Prep students work one-on-one with Villagers, learning and exploring technology. Our goal is to provide specific training, not just generalized information on how to use technology. We have two 90-minute, one-on-one sessions, plus informative lectures followed by individual work with a student to take that information to the next level and actually use it on your device.
Ambrose Ferber, Associate Director of Technology and Chair of Computer Science at Santa Fe Prep, Ann Church, President of Villages of Santa Fe, and Michelle Rothwell of Villages will coordinate the workshop, with specific topics and goals. During that time, students work one-on-one to give Villagers confidence in their ability to use their phone, tablet, or computer.
