Stu­dents teach

be­com­ing more pro­fi­cient in MS Of­fice ap­pli­ca­tions like Word, Out­look, Ex­cel, Pow­erPoint, and Ac­cess.”

The hos­pi­tal em­ploy­ees who took part in the col­lab­o­ra­tion also had high praise for the ex­pe­ri­ence and for their stu­dent men­tors.

“The col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween FBLA and the hos­pi­tal pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity to learn so much valu­able in­for­ma­tion in the fea­tures and abil­i­ties avail­able in the Mi­crosoft Of­fice 2010 ap­pli­ca­tions,” Carol Casey said. “The op­por­tu­nity to have as­sis­tance and sup­port as I learned with the tools pro­vided has made it at­tain­able to learn more than I could ever do on my own. Also the abil­ity to be­come Mi­crosoft Cer­ti­fied in one or more ap­pli­ca­tions has made me feel that I have ac­com­plished some­thing valu­able per­son­ally, and has al­ready made a dif­fer­ence in the sup­port I can pro­vide to other staff at NCH.”

Pauline White com­mented “He­len Keller once said: ‘Alone we can do so lit­tle; to­gether we can do so much. I strug­gled to do the Mi­crosoft Of­fice cer­ti­fi­ca­tions on my own. I bought the books and other tools, but just did not seem to find the time or mo­ti­va­tion to get started. The col­lab­o­ra­tion pro­vided the right amount of sup­port and mo­ti­va­tion I needed to help me ac­com­plish my goals.”

“Not only was this a great op­por­tu­nity to broaden and strengthen our skills in the ap­pli­ca­tions we use ev­ery day, but it also al­lowed us to learn and teach across gen­er­a­tions. It was an out­stand­ing learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for ev­ery­body in­volved,” said Penny Wheeler.
