Unless you have unlimited money (and time!) you have to choose your technology projects carefully. Karen Graham shared info from the recent sector study about what kinds of technology are believed to have the strongest return on investment, then led a conversation about how to evaluate potential tech purchases and how to squeeze the most value out of them.
Karen Graham is the managing director of education and outreach at Tech Impact, a nonprofit that connects technology with social change, and the home of Idealware.
