Application: Technology in Human Services Organizations
As you discovered in the Discussion, technologies can provide numerous benefits to human services organizations. To determine whether or not new technologies are a good fit for an organization, you must be aware of their strengths and limitations. You can research new technologies using reviews, articles, and other testimonials from other companies to determine whether a new technology’s benefits will outweigh its limitations.
For this Application, you consider new technologies that would enhance the services provided by a human services organization. As you do so, think about the benefits and limitations of such technologies on the organization and its clients.
The assignment: (3–4 pages)

•Briefly describe three specific technologies that might attract and/or better serve potential and existing clients and explain how and why. Be specific.
•Explain at least one benefit and one limitation each technology might present for the organization and its clients.
