Is your organization thinking about creating a mobile application? Tech & Social Change Baltimore's December meetup shared two case studies on the development of mobile applications for nonprofits. A huge thanks to organizer Kate Bladow for blogging about the event.
Note: this has been cross-posted from Kate's original post on the meetup group.
Tech & Social Change Baltimore's next meeting will be February 7 at 6:30 pm. Jessica Keyes from the Enoch Pratt Free Library will join us to explain how Enoch Pratt Free Library is successfully using social media to engage with supporters, build its reputation, promote its programming, and increase donations.
NetSquared Cambridge organizer Mel Findlater recently spoke at Net Tuesday Vancouver on how tablets and smartphones such as the iPad and iphone really can create social change in education, for people with disabilities, older people, and in your everyday productivity. Mel shared inspirational stories - she showed us how tablets can be used to prevent dementia and allow autistic adults to communicate in ways never before possible.
Check out the storify for Mel's slides, photos, videos and a list of mobile apps that can create meaningful improvements in people's quality of life.
