  2. 2. @drbexl Taking the Pulse…
  3. 3. @drbexl “The means by which we live have outdistanced the ends for which we live. Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.” Dr Martin Luther King, Jr
  4. 4. You Setting Other Change @drbexl
  5. 5. @drbexl “As young people develop their identities they need guidance and support, particularly from the significant adults in their lives. The behaviour that those adults model, whether it’s with regard to digital technologies or great historical events such as the Holocaust, or even in the way the cleaner is treated, is important in helping children define their own identity, values, and attitudes.” Raising Children in a Digital Age, p.101

  8. 8. @drbexl Dodgy Health Information A fifteen-year-old girl tries to diet but finds herself bingeing soon afterwards. Ashamed, and even more concerned about how this will affect her weight, she searches for help online, but finds a “pro-mia” website. Or a fifty-three-year-old man, faced with redundancy, wonders how he will manage without his work and income. Too ashamed to talk to his wife or his GP, he enters a forum for those suffering from depression, but instead of support, he finds aggressive interactions and accounts of self-harm. Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, 2011
  9. 9. @drbexl Taking time out.. “It's about family togetherness, personal growth and development, and being masters over our environment - rather than enabling our fast-moving, sophisticated world and electronic equipment to dominate us.” Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis speaking of ‘Shabbat UK’, October 2014
  10. 10. @drbexl Conversation “The epiphany for me was that I’d become a terrific broadcaster and a terrible communicator…. There was an awful lot of telling going on and not a lot of listening” Daniel Sieberg, The Digital Diet, 2011, p.26
