Dropping in at Aorere College ...

I love to drop in on different projects and see what everyone is up to, the different training techniques and of course, meeting students before they graduate.

One of my favourite sessions topic is the MS Word Document.  No matter how computer savvy you are or aren't - this is fun for EVERYONE and it's usually the more savvy users that take the longest time to finish!  We love that by the way - it shows you're having FUN with learning!

Here are some early pics of the MS Word sessions going on and the wonderful creations spilling forth!  Well done Aorere - hidden artists :)







A lot of planning and thinking, poring through Google for the right pictures ...



Beautiful faces ....





Someone HAS to do Nicky Minaj!


This one had a barcode for authenticity - except when I scanned the code - his magazine was for FREE!



Yep!  That works!

  4. Hi everyone, Davinia here, I'm really enjoying the CIH class at the moment. I think that the Computer in Homes is an amazing project for all parents who want to learn more of what the computers can do for them and their families. Our trainers and their buddies are so helpful and I'm looking forward to Graduation Day.

    2. Malo Cara..when i told my extended family and friends about CIH project and the rewards, they thought i was joking but also thought what a great programme for families!! I hope the schools in their area would do the same for them.

    3. Malo fo'i Davinia

      All they have to do is ask Davinia! If they know their school is low decile in a low decile region - then simply ask the Principal if Computers In Homes has ever been through. Send them to have a look at our national website http://www.computersinhomes.org and the links to different regions throughout NZ.

      Call us or email us!

      Thanks for the great reviews with family and friends - appreciate it all :)

      With such a short time and so much to learn - you have kept up really well - your email page is very organised! Your auto-signature is precise - as you get used to the layouts, you'll experiment more! I am delighted with how much you have accomplished. I hope you are too!

      A great start and it goes so fast that it's over before you know it! Thank you for joining us and for hanging in there. Once you've got the computer home with the moko - then you can practice more and build that confidence. Graduation is just around the corner now!

      Take care
