If leveraged correctly, technology has the power to accelerate your work to meet your mission. Even better when that technology is free. Too often though, we spend too much time jumping on free technology offerings and not enough time figuring out what we’re trying to do and how the technology can (or in some cases cannot) help us. In this session, we talk about how to prepare to truly leverage free technology — from what questions to ask of technology providers to who should be involved in choosing the technology and helping implement it. Instead of seeing the process of choosing technology as a scary process, this session will empower you to choose the right tools for your organization.
Three takeaways from this session:
How to decide what type of technology is right for your organization
How to assess your organization’s technical capacity for implementing and making the most of new technology
What questions to ask when you’re deciding on new technology (free or not)
