About a year ago my kids were encouraging me to take the plunge and invest in a smart phone. It would certainly make keeping up with growing grandchildren easier. One year later I am finding many positive uses in my day to day work activities as well. Being able to keep up with e-mail or texts when I am away from the office attending a conference helps me stay connected. I really have tried to keep up with technology over the years, but things change so rapidly it can be a bit overwhelming for this middle aged educator.
When Jamie Rathbun, Family & Consumer Science Agent in Ellsworth County, mentioned she was putting together an educational program titled, “Smart Apps for Your Smart Phone” I jumped at the chance to schedule her for a visit. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 7th, and join us at noon at the Great Bend Activity Center, located at 2715 18th Street.
Jamie will pass on some ways to use your smart phone in a smart way. Let’s face it; smart phones are an investment – for the phone and for the service plan. Jamie’s program will give you ideas on how to save and budget money, save time and make better choices when shopping.
If you are unable to attend the program Wednesday, May 7th, I will present the same information on Friday, May 9th, at 1 p.m. at the Great Bend Senior Center. For the program on Friday, my co-worker, Alicia, has offered to come and assist.
Don’t let technology pass you by. I hope to see you at one of the programs next week!
