Human services professionals use technology for everything from finding resources to keeping in contact with clients and staying current by monitoring the human services environment. With the variety of technologies available, and with new ones constantly emerging, keeping up with the latest innovations can be challenging. Professionals are tasked with finding—and, in some cases—learning to use the technologies that are most beneficial to their area of practice.

Using specific examples, explain how professionals might use the technology and how it may benefit their particular practice.
