Farm Bureau to hold tech classes

PRINCETON — The Farm Bureau has teamed up with the University of Illinois Extension and Ag View FS and has announced new technology classes to be offered in the near future. Class sizes will be small and paced for beginners.

The first class will be for iPad users. On March 18 there will be an iPad Basics and iPad for Agriculture class. Two identical classes will be held, one from 3 to 5 p.m. and the second class from 6 to 8 p.m.

Class fees are $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Member fees are available to Bureau County Farm Bureau members, registered 4-H volunteers, or teachers in Bureau County school districts using Ag in the Classroom.

This class will be held at the Bureau County Extension office on 850 Thompson St., Princeton. Register at Bureau County Farm Bureau at 815-875-6468 or bcfb@comcast.net. When registering, include your name, phone number, confirmation of your own iPad and payment. Payment must be received to reserve a spot.

For iPad classes, participants must bring their own device. An iTunes account must be set up before the class begins, the iPad must be upgraded to the latest version (currently iOS 6.0.1), and the tablet must be an iPad (not an Android tablet).
