    Tools, Apps, and Resources to Innovate Your Work
    With so many options out there, it can be tough to narrow down which tech is best to help you push the envelope on what you’re able to do in your work. But what if you could pool what you know about great tech with others? In this collaborative Disrupt Room session, we’ll discuss our favorite tools, apps, and resources for innovating our work. Through sharing the group’s knowledge and experiences, you’ll discover technology-based solutions for topics ranging from e-learning design and development to graphic design, audio/video recording and editing, project management, social learning, and more. You’ll also find out about tips and tricks that can help you get more out of the tools and resources you likely already have.
