Last month, Emily Tucker, CEO and Erin Yamaoka, Technical Account Manager attended the ICT4D conference in Nairobi, Kenya, hosted by CRS. The multi-day event was the largest tech for development conference the industry had ever seen. Over 700 experts from disparate fields shared and learned how information and communications technology solutions can be applied to a range of development issues such as remotely assessing disaster areas to more accurately monitoring the weather and water levels at boreholes or assisting farmers in the farthest rural hinterlands having trouble with their crops, using distance learning and digital advisory systems.
At ICT4D, we were lucky to have Emily and Erin both speak at the conference covering ‘Strategies for Ensuring Field Staff Adoption’ and ‘Deploying Mobile Tech to Scale Impact.’ For those of you wondering how to have successful field staff adoption of mobile data collection, check out this blog post.
