Technology
       Wonders & Worries
This will help frame our conversation this afternoon.
A Day In the Life...
Does this sound familiar...?
We certainly are a Digital Nation.

•   Frontline’s “Digital Nation”
    http://video.pbs.org/video/140
The air we breathe...
•   This is the water we’re
    swimming in - it’s not going
    away
•   Technology changes at a
    rapid pace
•   This isn’t a new conversation
•   Technology expands our
    world
•   Use & moderation will look
    different for everyone
•   Nothing should get in the
    way of our calling to love
    God & love others, whether
    that’s technology or
    anything else
Web 1.0 & Web 2.0: What’s the difference?

•   Static content                    •   Dynamically generated content

•   Enhancing knowledge               •   Enhancing creativity

•   Information download              •   Information sharing

•   Little to no interaction          •   Collaboration

•   Users are passive recipients of   •   Users are required to engage
    information                           with information, create it

•   FINDING                           •   CREATING & SHARING
The World is Obsessed with Facebook

•   “The World Is Obsessed With Facebook” Video
    http://vimeo.com/20198465
Takeaways...

•   Author Daniel Pink says that
    parents must “prepare our
    children for their future, not
    our past.” Technology is
    awesome - enjoy it and
    prepare them!
•   Vibrate: OFF
•   You are the parents; you still
    get to make the rules.
•   Be aware - use common
    sense.
•   Everyone’s family will be
    different.
Wonders: Creativity, Collaboration &
Connection
Creativity & Collaboration...
Pomplamoose covers Beyonce’s “Single
Ladies”

•   Pomplamoose: http://www.youtube.com/PomplamooseMusic

•   Single Ladies cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIr8-f2OWhs
Connection...

•   New communities are formed
    and new friends are made
•   Deeper connection are made
    within already existing
    communities
•   Kids get connected with the
    world: Iran, Egypt, Japan...
•   Belonging
Worries: Privacy, Safety & Too Much?
Privacy...

•   Young people often do not
    get this
•   Once it’s out there, it’s out
    there
•   Must know & understand
    privacy settings on social
    networks
•   Some great resources on
    your handouts
•   Privacy connected to safety
Watch out for...

•   Formspring: cool website
    that spirals downward VERY
    quickly
•   Chatroulette and its clones
    (zupyo, Omegle, Flirtspin,
    etc): online video chat,
    essentially a way to
    accidentally stumble across
    pornography
Just too much...?

•   Facebook friends with
    people they don’t even
    know
•   Pre-school reunion???
•   Relationships used to last
    for seasons, not we carry
    them all with us (and the
    online photo galleries to
    prove it)
•   Always connected
•   Smartphones in bedrooms?
    81.5% said YES
So where do we
 go from here?
#1: Enjoy it!
•   We live in an EXCITING time
•   Embrace the awesomeness
•   Use technology for good
•   Connect with and help out
    other people
•   Prepare your children for
    their future, not your past...
•   Have fun with your kids -
    start a blog, make a video,
    post it on YouTube, get
    creative!
#2: Vibrate: OFF
•   Spiritual direction
•   Find times when you and
    your kids are “unavailable”
•   There was life before
    smartphones and handheld
    gaming devices
•   Help your family connect
    with God (whatever that
    looks like for you) and not
    with others for periods of
    time
#3: You make rules
•   You are the parents and you
    STILL get to make the rules
•   Even if you don’t
    understand the technology,
    you are in control.
•   It also means you have a
    responsibility to learn and
    stay up-to-date on the tech
    your kids are using
#4: Be aware.
•   Work on your awareness
•   Use common sense
•   You will know - or your
    spouse/partner/child will let
    you know
•   Notice when it’s becoming a
    distraction to you or your
    child’s spirituality and
    connection with God
#5: Everyone will
be different...
•   Get advice from friends, see
    what has worked for others
•   But in the end, find what
    works for YOUR family and
    be okay with that
•   Everyone will be different

  • 7. The air we breathe... • This is the water we’re swimming in - it’s not going away • Technology changes at a rapid pace • This isn’t a new conversation • Technology expands our world • Use & moderation will look different for everyone • Nothing should get in the way of our calling to love God & love others, whether that’s technology or anything else
  • 8. Web 1.0 & Web 2.0: What’s the difference? • Static content • Dynamically generated content • Enhancing knowledge • Enhancing creativity • Information download • Information sharing • Little to no interaction • Collaboration • Users are passive recipients of • Users are required to engage information with information, create it • FINDING • CREATING & SHARING

  • 17. Watch out for... • Formspring: cool website that spirals downward VERY quickly • Chatroulette and its clones (zupyo, Omegle, Flirtspin, etc): online video chat, essentially a way to accidentally stumble across pornography
  • 18. Just too much...? • Facebook friends with people they don’t even know • Pre-school reunion??? • Relationships used to last for seasons, not we carry them all with us (and the online photo galleries to prove it) • Always connected • Smartphones in bedrooms? 81.5% said YES
  • 19. So where do we go from here?
  • 20. #1: Enjoy it! • We live in an EXCITING time • Embrace the awesomeness • Use technology for good • Connect with and help out other people • Prepare your children for their future, not your past... • Have fun with your kids - start a blog, make a video, post it on YouTube, get creative!
  • 21. #2: Vibrate: OFF • Spiritual direction • Find times when you and your kids are “unavailable” • There was life before smartphones and handheld gaming devices • Help your family connect with God (whatever that looks like for you) and not with others for periods of time
  • 22. #3: You make rules • You are the parents and you STILL get to make the rules • Even if you don’t understand the technology, you are in control. • It also means you have a responsibility to learn and stay up-to-date on the tech your kids are using
  • 23. #4: Be aware. • Work on your awareness • Use common sense • You will know - or your spouse/partner/child will let you know • Notice when it’s becoming a distraction to you or your child’s spirituality and connection with God
  • 24. #5: Everyone will be different... • Get advice from friends, see what has worked for others • But in the end, find what works for YOUR family and be okay with that • Everyone will be different
