Actually it's Steller, with an e-r-
Steller is an app for your smart phone and it's a cool thing to use for personal use or business.
It can be used as an online portfolio for nearly any business OR it can be used for photos family or otherwise in an artsy way.
I'm still getting used to posting times and the other this's and that's but I like it.  I've introduced it to a clients employees to use for their own portfolios where they'll be connected to the website.

There are so many apps and so little time to use them all.  Picking what's right for you or your client is a process.  It takes time, don't rush it.
 I want to try out Flipagram but haven't had enough time to devote to it, I will though, eventually. Then I'll be able to decide if it's right for a business as a tool or to chuck it in the app pile for another purpose.
Check out the info on both of these apps.  Right now, Steller is my fav.  


Teacher's Ed

I would wager to guess most of you are fairly computer literate.  If you know how to turn the computer on and where the monitor is you're good to go.

My Son and I at Disney World
Recently I decided to teach older adults at a local community center how to use the computer, to give them a gateway to communicate with family, browse, shop, whatever their hearts desires.  Maybe you don't remember those early days of opening and slamming through a labyrinth of windows, then you should.  I know how difficult it was for me to learn, I learned through trial and error, in some ways I wouldn't recommend it, on the other hand…

  If you're teaching by way of a PC I liken it to teaching some one to drive a stick shift maybe it would have been less painful through an automatic/Mac.  

Starting from the ground up there's only one thing required----- patience, no matter what you're teaching, because without it, you've lost your student if you don't.  Universally I heard how nervous family or friends with good intentions made them feel, rushed, and cajoled.    It stops the flow of free thinking. It's counter productive.
   I had one student who actually thanked me for the patience I had in teaching.  It's good she didn't see me after class. I've learned a little about myself through this teaching process, I thought I had it altogether, I thought everyone would  learn because I had all this patience.  But one student  had some issues  I didn't foresee.  Nonetheless, I've learned and updated and tomorrow when I walk into Part 2 of computers it will be a new day, or at least I hope so.
