Community investment: Development and Use of Technology


In an increasingly technology-dependent world, tech-solutions (from mobile phones, tablets to purpose-built apps) are increasingly being deployed to tackle social problems in the developing world. This session will showcase different examples of technology used for development and community investment initiatives. Speakers will also discuss if technology is the solution to everything, the limits of technology and development, and when technology can help with project scalability and impact. This workshop will help participants to understand how and when to apply technology to their community and development initiatives.
