Welcome to the Technology Learning Zone, the official blog of The Professional Admin. Here you will find the most recent technology information pertaining to the office administration field, and some other tips that will help you in your personal life, too.

I started this blog as part of a technology training I've taking through the Public Library System in my area. This is a work in progress while I learn about a variety of topics including: blogs, RSS Feeds, podcasting, social networking, language learning and more. As time pass by and I master all technological topics included in the training, I'll start adding posts with up-to-date information that I'm sure will be very helpful for you.

I hope you enjoy it.

Get Connected

About 2 weeks ago, social networking was strange to me. I have heard a lot of people talk about it, but didn't have any interest of joining the new era of communication.

But as I said, it was 2 weeks ago. I decided to join all Facebook users. What a surprise! I started to find some of my classmates from elementary and high school. Thanks to Facebook I discovered that one of my high school friends was on vacation here in Orlando, FL, and we were able to meet after more than 10 years of not seen each other. This is wonderful, you can meet new friends and reunite with old friends.

Get Organized

Did you ever work on a team were all members had different versions of the same document? You will never need to go through that situation again. With Google documents you can have your documents uploaded to the Internet ready to share with your teammates. Everyone will be able to make changes to the same document and the best of all they'll be available from any computer without the need to be making copies on disks or CD's. Check some of my documents stored in Google Docs by clicking in the following links. And, if you want to give it a try go to Google docs and start organizing your life!

The World In Your Hands

Who hasn't used an online map application to look for driving directions? Since I moved to Orlando, FL online maps are my best friends to anywhere I go. I don't leave my home without looking for driving directions if I'm going to a place for the first time. With CommunityWalk you can create personal or business maps where you can add markers to indicate your favorite places. Look at some of places around My Neighborhood.
