Monmouth/Winthrop Adult Education recently received a Connect ME Technology Grant to help promote the values of broadband internet to our community members. Broadband now covers most all of Maine wherever people have access to a computer and the internet. Money from this grant is enabling our Adult Ed program to now purchase 6 new computers that can handle this vast new world of knowledge and pass it on to people in our area. Soon we will be “up and running”.
As Adult Ed director, I recently attended a chamber of Commerce meeting where the guest speaker was the head of The Maine Small Business Development Center who talked about the support they lend to our local area. Many area employers were at this meeting and it gave me a sense of what our local economic services provide. As a result, our Adult Ed program now will join the Winthrop Chamber and will be given the opportunity to speak about our grant and begin to make ties with our local businesses.
Some of the more specific benefits of this grant (called the ConnectME Community Connection) focuses on; high speed broadband internet, online instruction anywhere-anytime, communicate with friends face-to-face, “visit” far off lands, attend performances, find help to build a new business and market your business on line, access health information (including your own medical records) and conduct business with local, state and national government services. It’s all out there for anyone and even if people do not have a computer at home, they can come into our Adult Ed facilities and we will help!
