So as someone who is not exactly gifted with computer skills I've spent lots of time turning to my friends and class mates for how to do something. This post is basically how to make friends and improve your collaboration skills by not knowing how to do things, and in the end you will have learned a lot about what you had to ask about, that's very important too.
1. The very first thing you need to know is that you will get no where if you don't ask for questions and ask for help, you might feel stupid at first having to be maybe the only one who didn't know something but trust me if you wait longer then have to ask later in the year or get a lower grade because you didn't know it will be so much worse.
2. the second thing you want to do is have one person you can turn to when you don't know something simple, which some people might make fun of you for, I had to turn to Chloe here on the left for many things.
3. Get to know the person next to you, they will be there always, and will connect you with "masters" of the classroom who know how to do things you couldn't even dream of.
this is Josie, on the right here, who I couldn't count how many times had to remind me what the undo key board command is (its control Z by the way I did learn it). Also as you can see below you might need a group of people to help you solve a problem, this is an amazing opportunity because now you can all share tidbits of information you have because you might know something they don't but they might know something you don't. as well as that it strengthens your ties with the people you're going to be working all year with. With this project, flying words, we did most our work in Adobe After Effects, which has many elements and is a complicated program for a fellow non computer pal but even if you're not working with a professional program, ask questions, learn as much as you can in the beginning.
Thank you for reading! I hope I helped some of you out with social skills in a computer class, never be afraid to ask!
