Every organization is looking for ways to increase productivity, and often the tendency is to throw more money into technology resources. But technology is only as good as the people using it! Training your employees to use the technology you already have can be much more efficient and cost-effective than buying new resources.
The Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA), in partnership with the Virginia Department of Social Services – Division of Child Care and Early Childhood Development (VDSS) was a finalist for the Governor’s Technology Award for its eLearning for Childcare Professionals presented this week at COVITS 2013 at the Richmond Marriott (Downtown). There were a record-setting number of entries and CCWA was selected by a panel of 12 judges from city, county and jurisdictions, as well as the education field.
