Using Tablets, Smartphones and Other Mobile Technology to Create a Virtual Work Space and Increase Productivity

Mobile devices like tablets and smartphones are changing how Extension professionals work. We will explore mobile devices including smartphones, iPads, Motorola Zoom and other tools and discuss their uses in Extension settings. We will provide actual teaching materials, create a site listing mobile applications for Extension professionals and re-view/demonstrate key apps with a focus on how the apps/tools let us work differently in Extension settings. Apps shared will focus on Extension programming/teaching, work and productivity improvement, and quality of life enhancement. Security issues also will be explored.
