Would Cleopatra Have Owned an iPhone?

Max Anderson, Technology Coordinator, Greater Midwest Region

If Cleopatra were alive today, she would definitely be eligible for the AARP. But would she be like the many seniors today who are embracing social media and emerging technologies at a rapidly increasing rate? Today, we have access to some amazing tools to research the ancient world of Cleopatra. We can use augmented reality to tour Alexandria. We can use Google+ to video chat with the head of antiquities of the Egyptian Museum. In this brief session, we will talk about mobile technologies, social and communication tools, and cloud-based services. Cleopatra had incredible power and influence in her time. Since knowledge is power, you will come out of this session *almost* as powerful as Cleo.
