One hundred sixty-two people attended The Mesa Kimball Stake Relief Society Technology Fair on Tuesday, February 18th. Twenty-three separate booths were provided with the four most popular booths being Gospel Library 3.0 and My Study Notebook, downloading individual videos from lds.org, indexing, and Family Tree features. Other classes covered using building resources, family uses of technology for church music and scriptures, Internet safety, and the LDS.org website. Nineteen of the twenty-four instructors were provided through the Greater Phoenix LDSTech Chapter which helped in the planning and execution of the fair.

If you would like to do something like this in your area (but twenty-three separate booths seems daunting), Mike Fish, President of the Greater Phoenix LDSTech Chapter, recommended eight ‘must have’ topics:

1.      Downloading church applications

2.      Gospel Library and My Study Notebook

3.      LDS Tools

4.      Family History

5.      Indexing

6.      Digital Missionaries

7.      Downloading and playing videos

8.      Discovering and using church resources

Contact your local LDSTech Chapter for help in setting up a Technology Fair in your area.  For copies of all twenty-three course descriptions and class content contact Mike Fish at [email protected].
