Digital Inclusion

Fix-It Tech Events Scheduled through March 2015Fix-It Tech Image-SaveDate

A free community technology education event providing computer hardware repair, education and tech support.  Fix-It Tech event goals:

Share the Fix-It Tech flyer and contact Elise Ebhardt with questions or to volunteer.

IT is developing the Fix-It Tech events with community partners in response to the Minneapolis Community Technology survey results and our experiences working with residents on their technology needs. The 2014 survey results show that residents overall are not very comfortable troubleshooting computer problems, installing software or backing up files, or protecting themselves online.

The 2014 Community Technology Survey results are published. See highlights, Ward summaries and the full report.

 


 

The City's IT Vision includes a component for addressing the digital divide in Minneapolis: All City residents, institutions and businesses will have the tools, skills and motivation to gain value from the digital society. Our residents and businesses need to be equipped to effectively compete with others around the world—to be smarter, more creative, more knowledgeable, and more innovative. Leveraging technology is a necessary ingredient of success.
