So everything around us seems to glow and beep and levitate in ways that don't make much sense and for those of us who don't stay glued to the tech blogs it can be challenging to adapt to every new digital craze that emerges. Even the most avid tech fanatics need time to understand new market trends. If the digital realm can sometimes seem like a bit of a neon blur to you, then fret not help has arrived.
Mastering digital is all about familiarizing yourself with systems that work for you. You don't need to chase the software, devices and gadgets that are the coolest or most expensive. After all if technology doesn't work for you then it doesn't work at all.
Set out looking at the important things you need, for example if choosing a tablet think about what you would use it for. Managing your diary, checking documents, reading and sending emails, making presentations, creating spreadsheets? Once you know what you would like to use the tablet for this helps you think about which one to get, if you are going to be checking documents or reviewing imagery you may benefit from a bigger screen and clearer display. It it is all about usual communications and document sharing on the go a smaller quicker tablet might benefit you.
The best thing you can do for yourself is spend time online looking at helpful videos, usually the supplier or manufacturer of your new tech gear will have massive communities of die-hard fans who are constant;y sharing helpful info in forums, blog posts and videos. Be sure to check Youtube and Quora for some insight.
Understanding digital can be broken up into really assessing your purpose for it, the necessity for it and your place within it. If it impacts our work, ask your service providers for support, knowledge and access to learning resources.
Most importantly give yourself time, learning anything new is not an overnight process so take your time to adapt. Seek the help of experts and find out who around you has the know how on some of your tech bits and bobs.
