Problem Solving with Technology

  • Ask someone who already knows it to show you how to use it efficiently.
  • Watch online tutorials provided by the producer.
  • Don’t be afraid to just play with it.
  • Practice using it before you need to use it for an official purpose: explore the menu, look for settings, help, log in and out, try to create new documents, edit and delete them, join and leave conversations.
  • Start small, accept that you will be frustrated, and move on slowly to more advanced features. Remember, you don’t have to know exactly how to do something as long as you know where this feature is located.
  • Ask a friend or a classmate to practice it together if the software or platform is used for collaboration.
  • Use keywords used by the producer (in help, in features) when looking for answers on the internet.
  • Consult the built-in help, tutorials, books, and videos from reputable sources if you need to learn it on a more advanced level.
