Session Description: 

If you're thinking about how to integrate technology to reach your goals, you're thinking about hardware, software, content, reach, engagement, and the mother of them all, context. This session provides you with a framework of problem analysis, solution choice and goal re-setting with a focus on  low-tech, high impact mobile technology solutions that impact youth.  The moderator and experienced panelists will use real-world examples, a live case study, and direct audience participation to uncover common problems and share tips on how to move past pilot-itis.
