Published on

2010 UT Extension Staff Development Conference
Abstract: We rely on technology daily to help us fulfill responsibility and accomplish our professional goals; however, technology is ever changing, always offering new gadgets and gizmos. As part of the land grant mission, Extension has traditionally embraced new advances in agricultural, but is sometimes tentative to try new computer technology within the office. Apple’s recent release of the iPad not only combines the newest software application technology, but packages it in a revolutionary touch-based user interface surely to change how we compute. The iPad offers a cost-effective option for staying in-touch and conducting basic tasks, in addition, to providing a stylish new way to expand your use of technology. Join us to learn what the iPad is, what it offers and how to utilize this new, emerging technology to benefit you and your programs.
