The Tech Spot is a School and Community Project located at the Renaissance Center (60 Water Street in Skowhegan). Under the supervision of an adult education instructor and other volunteer teachers, local students offer technology advice and tutoring at no charge to adults from throughout our school district. Individual and small group sessions are available by reservation or walk-in. Examples of possible help sessions include: general computer operation, preparing resumes, completing online job applications, conducting web searches, using Facebook and other social media programs, and operating Smart phones, iPads, Tablets, and PCs. Assistance is also available for creative software applications including basic iPhoto, & iMovie. Help with Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel & PowerPoint) is available as well.
Focusing on the safe use of tools and machines, each student will build a project of his/her choosing or bring in a project(s) that needs to be completed or repaired. Students will be responsible for the purchase of materials needed for individual projects. The first class will focus on choosing a project, selecting materials, and developing a construction plan. Instruction on machine use will begin during the second class. Work in the shop will begin during the third session.
Attendance is required for the first two sessions for continued participation in this class.

The Maine Humanities Council, a statewide non-profit organization, uses the humanities— literature, history, philosophy, and culture — as a tool for positive change in Maine communities. Our programs and grants encourage critical thinking and conversations across social, economic, and cultural boundaries.
This New Books, New Readers series will feature the Wabanaki people. The Wabanaki communities have lived on the land now called Maine for over 10,000 years. How have Wabanaki people asked and answered the questions who are we? where are we? how did we get here? And where might we be going? – before ‘Maine’, as ‘Maine’ became a state? How are Wabanaki people and communities asking and answering these and other questions now, after 200 years of living in ‘Maine’?
This series will meet 4 times this semester on the following Tuesdays:
- February 11
- March 17
- April 14
- May 5
Photoshop students from the Adult Education Photoshop II class will continue this fall in a ten-week, “Photoshop Independent Study and Projects” format. Students who have studied together for several semesters will meet to continue their projects: photo enhancement for lighting, color and size; adding artistic elements with filters, text and framing. Other who have been using Photoshop Elements or Photoshop are welcome to join the group for project support. The goal of this independent study is to create a place for group sharing, support and experimentation, but not for traditional instruction. The class will not meet on October 14 (Columbus Day), November 11th (Veteran's Day) and November 25th (Thanksgiving Break).
