[VIDEO] Children and Youth Online for @thegabrielco

The Gabriel Collective is a collective of people who follow Jesus and want to see young adults empowered to use online video to reach the digital generations. They’re having a meeting today, to which I was invited, and invited to give a 10 minute intro to digital culture/young people … I couldn’t make it in person, so I made a quick video (one take via webcam + iMovie!), based on the lecture I’d given on Continue Reading →

[VIDEO] Brené Brown: Why Your Critics Aren’t The Ones Who Count

Another great piece on criticism – both from others – and from imposter syndrome… dealing with it, without losing our vulnerability.

[VIDEO] Jean Vanier speaks on the Big Questions

When someone is loved, they are transformed, reveal to them they are beautiful. This does not happen if you’ve been humiliated and devalued.

#DigitalParenting: Book Launch Speech

On 19th February, my book Raising Children in a Digital Age launched. Here’s the ‘speech’ that I made, giving an overview of the book in about 13 minutes (I start around 5 minutes in, following Pete Phillips and Rhoda Hardie): Excuse the quality of the video. My laptop broke, when restored, I chose OS Mavericks, and iMovie doesn’t seem to be happy, so this created via a convoluted series of 3 pieces of software. I’ll maybe Continue Reading →

[VIDEO] 2 Minutes to Eradicate Self-Doubt?

Spotted this heading around Facebook (thanks Merry), although not convinced it is this simple … but this is part of the reason that I like the extras on films… it shows the need for failure, etc. to lead to success (‘instant success’ is very rare). It also reminds me of past coaching advice … focus on excellence, rather than perfection. OK is often “good enough”: drbexl Life Explorer, HE/learning, Christian, cultural history, WW2 posters: Keep Continue Reading →
