Blind Spots are the aspects of our children’s and students’ lives that we cannot see. We are not present 24X7 and we don’t see how they behave in all circumstances. The popular culture, especially cyber communications via texting and social media, cultivate and inspire ideas and behavior that suggest to children there are “no limits”. All the while we parents & teachers may be operating on beliefs, assumptions and anxieties that engage our blind spots rather than helping our child to become a better learner.
This talk explores how parents and teachers can partner to overcome blind spots.
Join local author, speaker, journalist, and mother of two grown sons, Joanna Jullien, who conducts research and fieldwork about the impact of texting and social media on family, peer and community relations. Her book, The Authority In Me: The Power of Family Life in the Network Culture, examines how mustard seeds of faith strengthen the role of parents to help children find peace in a cyber-powered world.
