As parents, group leaders or children’s workers, we have constant questions about how kids are interacting with digital spaces and the impact they are having on them.

This session will use current research to show the powerful interaction between insane technology and vulnerable, developing brains. Led by Chris McKenna, founder of Protect Young Eyes, we will discuss the challenges our kids are contending with in online spaces the erosion of their attention spans, sense of identity, and resistance to sexual exploitation.

Although technology can be useful and powerful, it’s leaving our young people confused because we’ve allowed influencers and algorithms to answer their deepest questions. How do we better prepare young people for their experiences in the online world?

We will answer this question with practical solutions that come from having delivered over 1500 presentations at schools, churches, and non-profits all over the world, so that you and the families you serve might feel prepared, balanced, and protected online.

Bring your questions and your great ideas!
