I’m super excited about the HAPS Annual Conference APP. This little app, which can be run on your computer OR phone, is a fantastic tool to ensure you make the most of your Jacksonville adventure, which begins next weekend. (It isn’t too late to decide to crash the HAPS party next weekend…online registration is available until May 26!)
The APP is a power-packed wonder of a tool to keep you organized and informed at the Annual Conference. And even if you can’t attend next week (we’ll miss you), you can use the app to keep up with what’s happening at the conference. So let me just tell you a few of the cool things I can do with my app:
- I can build a personalized schedule of conference events using the amazing app! While this will certainly keep me organized and efficient, I am already finding the process to be particularly painful, especially as I attempt to figure out which workshops I plan to attend on Tuesday and Wednesday at Florida State College. This process is painful because during most sessions, there are at least 5-12 workshops I really Really REALLY want to attend. Last year I found it extremely challenging to narrow down the workshop options during each session to ONLY ONE. I am optimistic that the amazing APP will help me sleep in peace as I maximize my professional development potential. (I wonder how many times I will revise my personal schedule on my app???)
- With the app, you can set alarms to remind you to get where you want to go. This will be particularly helpful for the morning sessions, because I am NOT a morning person.
- We can TWEET! There is a Twitter part of the app that lets us follow the Twitter-ific commentary from other HAPSters. Just tag your tweets #HAPS2014.
- Have a question? The app can do that! There are maps, exhibitor lists, sponsor information, and even a link to this fabulous blog.
So download the app and get ready for FUN TIMES AHEAD. See you in Jacksonville!
