Another session I appreciated at the recent GFA conference we went to was the encouragement to parents to keep up with technology.  It is a theme that has been close to my heart for many years as I see homeschool mums shying away from technology because of the huge learning curve it presents to them.  We can’t afford to let the technology of today pass us by – for our children’s sakes.

Our children are going to be using technology – even today but certainly in their future.  It was pointed out that technology is advancing or changing so rapidly that if we continually miss each new ‘step’ then we will get to a place where we have no idea.

We personally may be happy with this but our children won’t be and we aren’t doing them any favours. We need to be preparing them to live in the world that they live in – but to be always representing God.  The challenge I came home with was if we (parents) don’t know about specific technology applications then how are we going to guard our children and how are we going to teach them to use it to God’s glory?  We need to be a little savvy ourselves.

Not many families can afford every piece of technology in their home but within whatever means we have we need to be familiar with what is out there and its uses.   The new thing for me at the moment is the ‘cloud’.  My head boggles.  But slowly I’ll get an understanding – and maybe even use it!  For Peter it is facebook which is a much more confronting piece of technology as far as our family is concerned.  But we cannot hide our head in the sand and hope it will go away – it is the future and with all the concerns I may have about that I cannot change it.   I can understand it though and work towards protecting my children from the dangers and encouraging them in the benefits.
