Hacks That We Are Using in Extension: What Tools/Systems/Applications Are You Using to Work Differently in Extension?

Almost all Extension professionals are working in systems that are restructuring, reducing staff, doing more with less and searching for free technology tools. Join us in a facilitated discussion of participants sharing ideas, tools and concepts for working differently. Our team will demonstrate various tools and apps with a focus on applying them to work more effectively and efficiently. These will include favorite apps, new tools and innovative ways of using the new tools/apps. All shared tools/ideas will be typed live into an eXtension Create site that will be open for peers to add/edit items.
