Survey under way for Dunn County technology literacy project

December 28, 2011

University of Wisconsin-Stout is part of the new Community Partnership for Technology Literacy in Dunn County.

The program is aimed at helping residents improve computer skills to gain or keep employment, stay connected with family and friends, improve quality of life and increase economic opportunity.

Along with UW-Stout, the partnership includes AmeriCorps VISTA, UW-Extension, Chippewa Valley Technical College, Menomonie Area School District, Workforce Resource, Dunn County Job Center, Literacy Volunteers Chippewa Valley and the Menomonie Public Library.

The partnership is conducting a survey to assess technology literacy in the county. To help, go to http://goo.gl/9lKeQ or stop by the library to take either a paper or online survey. The survey takes about five minutes.

The survey ends Friday, Jan. 6. All residents are encouraged to participate. Survey responses are anonymous and confidential.

For more information, contact Tyler Schroeder, schroederty@uwstout.edu or 715-232-1328. Schroeder is an AmeriCorps VISTA coordinator for the Bridging the Technology Divide project through UW-Stout and the United Way of Dunn County.

The national AmeriCorps VISTA program is part of the Involvement and Leadership Center at UW-Stout.
