Technology Point Person (TPP) Wiggio - In the fall of 2013, RIDE requested that each program designate a Technology Point Person to help gather and disseminate technology information. At the beginning of 2014, a Wiggio group was created to help share technology information and resources as discussed in the quarterly meetings and elsewhere. This group is available to any Adult Ed instructor (click on the link above and create a Wiggio account). RIRAL's TPP is Kim Libby; for more information about the TPP role, click here.
