Just finished the Teen Internet Workshop (for Parents). Here’s my initial thoughts about the evening (that I just sent to Kenwho was helping in the youth room tonight — via e-mail):

I think it went as good as it could have… we filled every chair I put out (I counted 38-40 individuals) and everyone seemed really “into” the content. The feedback was tremendous and I felt like I communicated what I wanted to when it was all said and done. I even finished within 5 minutes of my time slot (whew)! So, all that to say, I am very happy with the outcome.

My only regrets… I wish we could have had a larger screen, as I’m sure it was hard to follow along on the TV monitor while I was surfing sites. I also wish I could have had just 5-10 more minutes to spend showing attendees the features that attract users the most on social networking sites like Facebook. Lastly, I had intended on showcasing the youth ministry web site and our weekly e-newsletter, Elevate Electric, at the end, but I didn’t want to keep people any longer.

Thanks to all who came out. I hope it was worth your time. And to those who couldn’t make it, we tried to capture it on video. I’ll take a look at the footage and see if the audio is good enough to post online (I was not miked). I’ll let you know if we post it — stay tuned…
