  • Learn all about ‘must have’ work-related apps and services for your phone, tablet and PC browser.
  • Practice using them under the direction and support of knowledgeable staff.
  • Share your own top tips and experiences, plus what apps you use and why.
  • Learn how other UN staff are using apps and services to best effect within their teaching and also general day to day work.

This is a participative event with an opportunity each month to share with fellow staff across all disciplines the apps you use in the classroom or apps you use in general.

Following the sessions, we would be interested in hearing how you get on with the apps you are trying out.

  • What do you like / dislike?
  • Are they easy to use?
  • How did you use them?

Please share your experiences with others who visit the App Cafe, even if they are only virtual visitors!
