Podcast – Two Exciting Ways to Use Mobile Data Collection in Refugee Programs May 8, 2017
On this episode of the META Podcast, we learn two new ways mobile data collection can support programs for refugees in the U.S. Hear from Rachel Factor of Refugee Services of Texas about Refugee Mobile, a project that gives clients smartphone technology and collects data through text message. Abigail Clarke-Sayer of the IRC also shares about a pilot program that put iPads in the hands of caseworkers to help them enter data on-the-go. (Want to hear more about this project?
