The Joys of Children and Technology

The few wonders of the world only exist while there are those with the sight to see them.-Charles de Lint

This post isn’t technical or about favorite apps.  It’s Friday, and it’s been a tough week for me.  My sister has terminal cancer and the family has been called in.  Even amidst the sadness, my 2 year old great-niece has provided us all with some relief and smiles.

Children have a way of doing that.  They have a way of seeing things that the rest of us don’t.  Earlier this week, one of my students asked, out of the blue, “Mrs. Meeuwse, does Jesus use FaceTime on his iPad?”  *crickets*  Well, um…you see…I looked at a room of 25 inquisitive, dead serious little faces.  And then, deliverance…another child piped up with, “Jesus is a superhero.  He can do anything.” And so, there it is.  Wisdom, innocence and simplicity all in one package.

Teaching has so many golden moments.  Some are amusing, some are profound.  I love my job.

I’d love for you to leave a comment, subscribe to my blog, and/or share this post with a friend.

  1. What a diferent world would be if we can talk with Jesus using facetime. We all need more heroes like him and more wisdom and innocence like the one shown by your students.

    God bless you and your family. Life always go on.
