I was a guest on James Valentine’s radio show (ABC 702 Sydney) today. We spoke about the positives of technology for family life. A very important contribution technology can bring to family life is that it helps families to communicate with each other. Callers rang in about the value of Skype for staying connected with children or family overseas. One grandma even said she cooks with her young granddaughter via Skype. The granddaughter cooks while grandmother chats to her and gives her cooking advice. Another benefit we talked about was that technology offers many opportunities for family members to share things they see online and have a chat about them. From this perspective technology provides a medium for families to know each other’s interests and to acknowledge and share their interests. This is a huge benefit to families and one which we can embrace to enhance family life.
