Cater- pillars do it. So do bears, chipmunks, frogs and turtles. Call it what you want -- nesting, coeooning or just plain tucking in for the winter. But if you're like most Americans in the aftermath of Sept. 11, you're plan- ning to stick close to home and hearth for the next few months. America's foremost trend expert, Faith Popcorn, recently noted that people are "holing up" as the realiza- tion sinks in that we live in an unpre- dictable, uncertain, and essentially, uncontrollable world.

They never were just paper cards, of course--- then and now, people send fabric cards and chocolate cards and metal cards. Computers have added extra options, including video rience. (And like all machines, computers don't always do what they are supposed to. The 'computer being used to project the lesson on a screen froze up and wouldn't work. Dezutter said his experiences with computers have taught him a lesson. "The true miracle of modern technology is making it work when people are watching.) It must be a lot more intimidating for people who have rarely or never used a computer, he said. Beginning in January, district officials will offer evening classes for people who want to improve their skills. Computers are a basic component of life in the new millennium; "computers really are a part of everyday life, and are very accessible" with the right instruction, Page said. The classes will be for "adults, kids--whoever wants to come," he said. Them will be three six-week courses, starting with basic skills instruction in English and Spanish. The third classwill include word processing and is designed to build on skills learned in the first two classes. Morn classes will be scheduled through the end of the school year; tentative topics cards. Bridgeport School District patrons got the chance to make their own video cards as a fun way of introducing the community to the district's new com- puter lab. The lab is not just new, it's brand-new, open about two weeks. District patrons were invited to learn some basic computer skills and how to use the Internet as well as making the video cards. The video cards were between 20 seconds and one minute in length, "'just long enough to have a greeting. Say how you're doing," said Michael Page, an E-Corps (part of the AmeriCorps program) worker at Bridgeport School. The process began with a video camera that is, alas, old and crotchety, said AI Dezutter, the district's technology direc- tor. But it is possible to make even an old crotchety piece of equipment perform with the new and cool stuff. "It's pmUy include spreadsheets and basic accounting programs, using easy to set up, actually," Dezutter said it just takes the right graphics and designing video presentations. The idea is to equipment. (Page said people could get lessons in combining give people enought skills that they can pursue further train- their own old crotchety equipment and cool new stuff, with ing on their own, Page said. some advance notice.)
