I love helping parents, teachers, and kids learn how to use technology well! After a successful business consulting career with Ernst & Young, and a 6-year stint in full-time youth ministry, I now lead a team of dedicated presenters and researchers. Since 2015, we've performed over 500 presentations at schools, churches, and organizations around the US and Canada. Read more about us here.
NOTE: These training sessions can be used in both Catholic Christian (non-Catholic) settings.
Overall Summary: In these videos, we provide the latest information about online pornography, the impact of technology on the brain, the impact of social media on relationships, digital predators, and cyberbullying. Each of the four videos comes with discussion questions.
