Technological Skills

Standard

My very first contact with technology was when I was in year seven, my first year at High School.   My task back then was to put a set of commands into the computer to make a turtle on the screen draw a simple pattern, oh how things have changed. After my brief introduction to computers I later went on to a basic computer skills course at TAFE. I then studied HTML at the University of New England  in Armidale NSW and from that moment on I  began to want to learn more about  computer technology or ICT as it is known today. I am very fluent in Microsoft Word, Spreadsheets, Databases and Excel. One of my hobbies is in community radio where I have learn’t to effectivally use their music playout broadcasting programs namely (Zara and Raduga.) These clever little programs are used to allow us to produce and present live to air radio programs including streaming to the world via the internet. Recently I have played a part in an uplink program we have put together that connects five community radio stations consectivally from Dalby in Queensland down the New England Highway and all the way out to Dunnedoo in central NSW again, via the internet, this over night program is known as “Highway 15”. Even though I have progressed with my knowledge of  ICT’s I feel I still have a long way to go.
