Educating Advocates Series: Smartphone Workshop

Free Smartphone Workshop

Smartphones provide various features and applications designed to aid productivity and fun; and for those who know how to use them they have become important tools for organizing communities and social activism.

In the upcoming election, Poll Workers will use smartphones to access and forward important data.  And some residents will use their phones to offer proof of residency; showing digital photos of documents that prove where they live – like copies of utility bills or other official mail.

Mobile companies are introducing different models with advanced features and there are different operating systems to consider like Android or Apple.  There is a lot to consider and sometimes it hard to stay on top of what is important when making buying decisions or selecting which apps to try.
