April’s not-to-miss Tech Tuesday to feature Loomio

NCDD’s Tech Tuesday events had a bit of a hiatus since the conference, but they’re back with a vengeance with the next several being firmed up as we speak. For April’s event, on Tuesday, April 7th, we’re pleased to feature Loomio, an open source app for group collaboration and decision-making that has been generating lots of buzz in the field.Tech_Tuesday_Badge

Registration is open now, so reserve your spot today!

Loomio emerged when activists from the Occupy movement teamed up with the social enterprise network Enspiral, realizing that they were using different approaches to work towards the same aim. Loomio provides an independent and neutral online space for complex discussion with lots of people at once. People can start a discussion, build agreement toward possible solutions, and ultimately come to a decision together for a course of action. Today, Loomio is used by people across the globe in a variety of settings to achieve better outcomes.

In this Tech Tuesday on April 7th (4-5pm Eastern/1-2pm Pacific), Loomio cooperative members Alanna Krause and Chelsea Robinson will join us to demonstrate the tool and share case studies of how it has been utilized. Participants will have the opportunity to see how Loomio works and ask questions. A brief video introducing the tool is below.

This FREE event will take place on Tuesday, April 7 from 4-5pm Eastern/ 1-2pm Pacific. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to experience this simple yet powerful tool – register today!

Tech Tuesdays are a series of learning events from NCDD focused on technology for engagement. These 1-hour events are designed to help dialogue and deliberation practitioners get a better sense of the online engagement landscape and how they can take advantage of the myriad opportunities available to them. You do not have to be a member of NCDD to participate in our Tech Tuesday learning events.
