Learning and Development Roundtable: Harnessing Tech Tools for Turbulent Times

April 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+3

FREE

In these turbulent, trying times we are apart but that doesn’t mean we have to be isolated.  Tech tools can help bring us together, they can help us connect, bridge and help us feel like we belong.  Seriously.

If your eyebrows have just climbed up your face and you’re snorting in derision, I get it.

Ever felt so frustrated that you wanted to throw tech in the toilet?  While tech tools can definitely make us feel anxious and overwhelmed this April’s Learning and Development Roundtable will help you get a handle on those feelings by harnessing tech to help you (no that’s not a typo). Instead of feeling heckled by tech, and out of control, we’ll have fun demonstrating a bunch of tools that will put you back in the driver’s seat, feeling calm, competent and confident.

“It’s using the technology, and being creative with it, and solving problems that people have or creating something beautiful with it.” Limor “Ladyada” Fried — MIT Graduate and Owner of DIY electronics company Adafruit

Getting a handle on tech is a must today but that doesn’t mean it has to be painful or stressful.  Come and discover a whole new world of how tech can help you get more ease, efficiency and productivity.  So you can get on with being of service and doing what you do best.

“Technology is best when it brings people together.” Matt Mullenweg, Social Media Entrepreneur, Developer of WordPress

In this free workshop with Lee-Anne Ragan you’ll

  • Figure out if you are an armadillo, turtle, duck or dolphin and why it’s SO important to know when you’re using tech tools.

  • Feel your eyebrows rise in excitement instead of frowning in frustration as you take part in tech tools demos that will show you how to stay in control of tech instead of feeling overwhelmed and controlled by tech.

  • Experience the magic and feel transformed as we pull back the curtain and demystify tech.

  • Discover the use and usefulness of tech in your work (and personal life) and get access to resources with all the tech tools we’ll cover.

  • Count the workshop towards your annual UN-Mandated training (If you’re a UN staff)

“Technology will never replace great teachers but technology in the hands of great teachers is transformational.” – George Couras
