Workshop makes participants h-app-y

crowd1webThose who participated in today's workshop, Apps for Fostering Independence at Every Age, were thrilled with the amount of valuable information shared by co-presenters Melanie Johnston and Mark Coppin. During the workshop organized by AuSM, Minnesota Life College and the University of St. Thomas, more than 115 participants learned how to use i-devices to increase individual independence; obtained app search and selection guides to simplify; discovered how to match app features to individual needs; and learned how to use apps differently by substituting i-device technology for traditional forms of organization, classroom and work output. Thank you to participants, speakers and organizers for the great day of learning!
