Pocket: A Great Tool for Social Workers

I wanted to write about some of the apps that I use on a daily basis. As the internet has become a daily part of our existence, it’s common to run into content, stories, etc. that resonates with you.

Pocket is Free App That I Use Daily

Pocket is that safe harbor to keep, clip, archive, store, and share online reading. It is a “read it later” app which allows you to digitally “clip” articles and revisit them later. If you’re a busy social worker like me that can catch a quick glimpse of social media during a brea, then this app is for you! As far as I know, Pocket does not work on any type of payment model. The experience in using this service is what you would expect from paying a premium – the functionality, apps, and clipping are all very well executed – all for no cost to the consumer.

The Need For Practicality

Sometimes, we as social workers have very good interventions that are sitting in our notepads, filing cabinets, or books we have purchased. Sometimes they are on other peoples’ blogs.

What if I told you that you could easily access some interventions quickly, easily, and without distraction? Without having to get up from your chair in the middle of a session to look through your drawer for said intervention? Without kicking yourself later that you couldn’t find the intervention?
