Andy´s Project is a basic computer education course for Illinois farmers around the age of 50, who left schools before computers became a part of our culture. These very successful farmers are very aware of the advantages that computer-literate farmers have over them, and they would like to join the ranks of regular computer users. Andy´s Project is a four part workshop, conducted in two hour blocks. Farmers are hands-on from the minute they walk into class and homework will require that they begin to use the skills they learn in each class. Farmers are placed in groups of five and work on laptops with wireless connections to the internet. They receive instruction on setting up e-mail accounts, search the internet for valuable resources, and learn how to put simple spreadsheets together and navigate the more complicated pre-programmed spreadsheets available from farmdoc and other websites.
