NextGenKent: Are Teens Living an Avatar Existence in our Matrix World?

NextGenKent: Are Teens Living an Avatar Existence in our Matrix World? | growing people | Scoop.it

 What if teens today are living out their lives in a somewhat Matrix existence? A false reality where the "adult world" that is seen and lived in by adults is participated in by their sending a 'surrogate avatar' out into it everyday while their 'real body' is kept in an underground world. 2nd-life living among our teens is normative; a world where they send out an avatar of themselves to parents, work, school, even church, while their real self is exposed only to the underworld of youth community.

Kent Kessler's insight:

I still think this is significant today.

My family went screen-free for a week to re-learn how to talk to each other - Quartz | growing people | Scoop.it
As the parent of three children, I know all too well how hard it can be to get kids to put down the iPad and shut off the iPod. So when a local parenting magazine asked for volunteers willing to unplug for a week, I jumped at the chance.

Redefining the Youth Worker | FullerYouthInstitute.org | growing people | Scoop.it
This excerpt from Chapter 3 of April Diaz’ Redefining the Role of the Youth Worker: A Manifesto of Integration highlights the process April’s church went through to describe what they were looking for in a youth ministry leader. Inspired by their participation in our 2010 Sticky Faith Cohort, April’s church took a risk to reshape what it means to embrace teenagers in the life of the congregation. This excerpt is reprinted with permission from the Youth Cartel.

"We would hire a Student Integration Pastor" is a brave but correct paradigm shift to make! I loved being in churches like this when i was in college!
