Today I had to submit an essay on a debatable topic and how it affects today’s society. The topic I chose is technology. Upon further research for my essay I’ve come to find out that we are in for some rude awakenings if we are behind the curb in the technology arena. What do I mean by this? Well just look at the news, there are tons of lay offs and people have no idea whats next. On another hand companies are forcing their employees, if possible, to work from home. Before I go further let’s talk about the kids and school, it looks like there is about to be a lot of online learning occurring from within our homes. All of this in turn will create more demands in the tech sector, for the expansion of course and it will also create some challenges on the other hand for those who may not be so tech savvy. I encourage everyone to do some research or speak with someone that can assist you with any changes that may be challenging during these times. I will update my blog within the coming days with resources so that we can all work together without panic. I will also be discussing how us tech people can capitalize during these trying times. Stay tuned!

You can click here to visit the Google page, which has all the juicy details. It looks as though Google has partnered with Coursera, Goodwill and others to bring us tools for success. Google seems to be offering tons of resources to students, teachers,job seekers and even developers! It’s worth a look to see what all they have to offer. As we browse through their site we will be sure to share what we’ve uncovered. We plan to benefit from these tools as well. Good luck.

Grants are a form of funding awarded by a private foundation, or a federal or state government department or agency. Grants are based on a competitive process with strict guidelines for applying and using the funds. Grant funding agencies use grants as a way to accomplish a specific goal that the organization wants to achieve. There is a common belief that grants do not have to be repaid which is true but there are guidelines in place that must be followed and if not you can end up having to repay the grant.
