Technology fair to help families improve digital literacy

This article was originally published in The Notebook. In August 2020, The Notebook became Chalkbeat Philadelphia.


Interested in improving your computer skills? As part of Comcast Cares Day and Philly Tech Week, the School District of Philadelphia, Comcast, and KEYSPOT are co-sponsoring a free Digital Resource Fair tomorrow, April 27, for students and families.

Fairgoers can get one-on-one computer assistance and attend 30-minute workshops to help with job searches, finances, and understanding computer basics. Sponsors said they hope that improving computer skills will increase academic performance and financial literacy among students and families. Computers will be available for everyone to use, and organizers will raffle off a netbook computer.

The fair, which is open to the public, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the atrium of the School District’s headquarters, 440 N. Broad St.

Chalkbeat is a nonprofit newsroom dedicated to providing the information families and educators need, but this kind of work isn't possible without your help.
