Eight Ways to Navigate “Our Media World”

Kids K-8 are immersed in their preferred media zones; catechists already know this. “Sister Catechist” and “Sister Media” will share with us what they have recently concocted in their media mindfulness lab in this highly interactive presentation. Whether you share faith as a parent, catechist, Catholic schoolteacher, scout leader or Vacation Bible School director, join the sisters to learn exciting new ideas to help kids make wise media choices. Handouts will be provided.
