Tablets, Smartphones, iPads, iPhones: Gadgets for Good?

Net Tuesday is thrilled to have Mel Findlater from NetSquared Cambridge present on mobile technology for good this month.

===========

About the event:

Ever wondered what the big deal is about these new tablets, such as the iPad?

Curious as to how smartphones like the iPhone or Android phone can change the way we live?

How are they really different? Come hear one persons account of 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.

Hear stories, see apps, be inspired... and if you have a smart phone or a tablet do bring it along and feel free to tweet, hunt for apps and so on.

The twitter hashtag for Net Tuesday is #ntvan.


About the Speaker:

Mel Findlater is a Cambridge-based geek for social good (but she grew up near Vancouver!) She gets ridiculously excited about the possibilities of how technology can create social change. She has a background in working with young people, people with disabilities, older people and in the voluntary sector.

Most of her days are spent volunteering and working for The You Can Hub, enthusiastically raising awareness and developing projects to do with ipads, tablets, and technology to promote independence and learning. She's keen to share her knowledge, skills and passion with others, especially those who are on their own mission for social good.

Mel is really looking forward to the event, "This evening really focuses on the work that I have been doing and will be doing, exploring and talking to people about how to make it a reality and spread the word. It's all about the social good...which I think fits perfectly with Net Tuesday Vancouver"

    I hope the world hasn't collapsed yet, but if it has I've taken my iPhone with me!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
