Children and TechnologyMy wife Kelly-Dawn and I were asked to present on this topic at a recent women’s conference at our church, and I wanted to share the presentation online. I recorded the slideshow along with our commentary. Although we aren’t exactly experts with all of the answers, we have learned a few things that help us both use technology to teach our children practical information and to keep them safe from all that crazy stuff online that parents want to keep from their children. Please share your parenting tips below-we will take all the advice we can get!

For those interested in knowing how to record a Keynote presentation (or anything on your screen), I used QuickTime Player for the Mac.

Select File, New Screen Recording (or control+command+N).

Assuming you want to record audio along with the video, you must click on the teensy weensy drop-down triangle menu button and select your audio input source, likely the built-in mic. Otherwise, you will only record the screen and your movie will be silent.

Click the red record button.

You then have the option to record the entire screen (likely) or only a portion of it. Click anywhere to select the entire screen (if you’re using dual screens like we were, click on the one you want to record so that you don’t record your presenter’s notes, etc), or if you just want to record a portion of the screen, click and drag to make that selection.
