No experience necessary except a belief that technology can make our world a better place.
What to Bring:
Note-taking implements, digital or analog.
Non-profits are using some of our hottest current technology to deliver extraordinary impact on the communities they serve. But how can your organization leverage tech trends to further its mission?
Hear from three nonprofit leaders and learn what they see as the best uses of technology to drive real results on an organization’s mission. We’ll share success stories—and miserable failures—while teaching you methods for integrating tech into your mission.
You’ll also get hands-on experience as we work together to come up with a technological solution to a complex societal issue. Together we’ll explore the questions you should be asking, the stories you should be telling and the technology you should be experimenting with.
This two and a half hour long workshop is for action-oriented, technology-focused, and cause-driven people who want to work together to enact positive change. Prizes will be given for the storyboards that show the most innovative and creative uses of technology to solve our chosen problem.
