Technology as a Tool for Restoration with Ryan Collins

Is technology a tool or a toy, good or bad? What role does the arts play in technology? Can technology play a part in restoring homes? 

Ryan Collins, president of Bethel Tech, joins Jennifer in Episode 62 to answer these questions and so much more. There is a place for connection over video games, and the arts are the bedrock to a career in technology, just as they are for other aspects of a child's development into a well rounded human. Ryan also brings to the podcast a passion for righteous principles in the work force, his excitement for tech careers opportunities that skip years of college and debt, and his experience as a homeschool dad building a family culture of intentionality. 

Ryan's Practices for a whole and Restored Family: 

  1. We turn off wifi every night when we go to bed.
  2. When we travel qw wear hats that are emf blockers
  3. We make sure we are not spending a ton of time staring at screens
  4. We spend a lot of time outside and together
  5. Limit a child's screen time and make sure you are monitoring it
