How Learners Should Respond to the Digital World

by Brad Huddleston

Parents desire their children to have a proper education and prepare them for the “real” world, especially in the area of character-building and excellence. However, the struggle in guarding the hearts and minds of this generation increases due to the distractions, includences, and lies that they encounter through the domination of internet, technology, and modern-age practices.

This talk aims to find a solution to that problem by cautioning parents about the dangers of technology today and pointing them to the right resources that will help their child learn better, whether it be for academics, character-building, extracurricular activities, and more.
