Extension Builds on Tradition of Meeting Community Needs by Using Technology in Disaster Recovery
This article describes how Extension educators built on traditional community organizing approaches by engaging an advisory board and utilizing new technologies to co-create a video series supplement to Recovery After Disaster: Family Financial Toolkit. The intent was to assist disaster professionals and survivors in making informed decisions. Upon completion, the video series was made available online for immediate accessibility via tablet and smartphone following a disaster. The strategies, methods, and benefits of utilizing video technology to offer "just in time" education, while continuing to meet the Extension mission and address needs of individuals, families, and communities, also is presented.
