I
haven't been in a classroom for a while, sad to say. While I love classroom learning, I often don't havethe luxury of extra time and money for such things. And you know as well as I do that often — not every time, but often — you spend your time andmoney on something you take very seriously and you're surrounded by people who are not doing thesame.I am glad to say that I was encouraged on a recent visit to Rhodes State Campus. I visited a classroom totalk with people who were taking a course to boost their computer skills. In some cases,those skills were nonexistent.I am of the special age range — pushing old, in my mind — where computers were nota part of life. I remember when computers started coming into my high school, but theInternet was really just a toy. We weren't required to do anything with them.By the time I got to college, it was a different story. I remember receiving a login andpassword — highly novel ideas to me. My first page-design class was a trip. The professor knew she was dealing with some people like myself who didn't have a lot of computer experience and went very slowly. It seems so odd to look back on that today.But what I remember most was fear: Fear of being the only person in the classroom who didn't get it. That’s why the visit to Rhodes State was so great. The classroom was filled with peoplepaying attention to the instructor, helping their neighbors, and really just celebrating together that they  were learning. Nowhere was there an attitude of intimidation or "I'm better at this than you are." Those people left that classroom that day with the tools they needed to catch up, so to speak, with somuch of the world that is computer based now. One woman mentioned she wanted to buy an iPad.She was 83 years old. And you think you're too far behind to catch up?
