Technology Use During the COVID-19 Quarantine

Hi - I'm Rose. I hope this finds you well.

I'm a retired Extension advisor (agent) from the University of California Cooperative Extension, where I worked as a county 4-H director, a Master Gardener coordinator, a county director, and also as a statewide initiative leader for sustainable food systems (agriculture). I'm currently an Ed Tech fellow for eXtension Foundation. 

I'm interested in learning more about how Cooperative Extension professionals have been using technology during the quarantine, and what resources/training you may need. Results will be shared in the Technology in Extension Education Group. Thanks so much for participating!

Also, if there's any way I can help you learn more about the features on this platform, please let me know!

Have you adopted new technologies since the COVID-19 crisis began?

These could be a new social media platform, new apps, etc.


If "Yes", which ones?

Other Social Media Platform
Learning Management System (e.g., Canvas, Google Classroom, etc)

What technologies would you like to learn about?

During the last three months, have you participated in an eXtension webinar, Social Cafe, virtual chat or other event?

Technology use during the COVID-19 quarantine saw a significant surge as people relied on digital tools for work, education, and social connection. Remote working software, online learning platforms, and video conferencing apps became essential. This period also highlighted the importance of internet access as a utility, and accelerated the adoption of telehealth services.
