Social Media and School
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 06-10-2014
Had a very helpful and interesting day with TISCA – The Independent Schools Chaplaincy Association.  We were thinking about Redeeming Technology especially looking at Social Media and the lives of teenagers. The teenagers in question are students in some of the most exclusive schools in the country and the chaplains are playing a very strategic role in the lives of these schools. The day kicked off with an excellent talk on understanding the impolications of our belief in the Kingdom of God for online life from Rev Libby Talbot. I…

5 Reasons to wish Wired Happy Birthday 
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-15-2014
I have been a regular subscriber to Wired for a few years now. It’s a fantastic magazine to read. Here’s what I like Design In my estimation Wired is at the cutting edge of design, I read the magazine for inspiration on lay out and visual presentation. The quality of the photography and infographics make the magazine a pleasure to read . Balance There’s a fantastic balance between meatier – in depth articles (helpfully arranged at the back of the magazine) and lighter easy to digest news, reviews and how…

Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-04-2014
I am running a seminar at Word Alive with the subject: Digital Discipleship : serving Christ on Social Media. Here's the blurb for the seminar: Discover the opportunities that Facebook and Twitter bring for mission and discipleship. Start the conversation early by following @krishk and tweeting a question using #Socialdisciple As I was preparing the seminar this week, I came across these images of poor old Ella Birchenough from Dover who dropped her Blackberry down a drain and then removed the drain cover and jumped inside to try and retrieve…

6 verbs of leaders on twitter
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 01-28-2014
Looking forward to a seminar this afternoon with students at Regents Park College at Oxford University. One of the topics we are going to look at is whether twitter is worth the hassle. Here are my six reasons why it can be a useful tool for leaders. 1.  Incarnating - expressing gospel in another subculture Living out the gospel in every sphere of life is our calling as disciples of Christ, Twitter is a great space to do that in. 2. Listening    -  allowing new streams of ideas and…

Looking forward to the TEDx event in Oxford. Thought I would do a bit of research on the speakers. My son is coming along with me and is really looking forward to the chance to interact with some big ideas. Here is some info on all of the speakers that I know abou.

Throughout its history the church has often utilised new technologies to help spread the good news of the gospel. Now in an age of ebooks outselling print books it makes sense for digital tools for Bible study to come into their own. The very kind folks at Logos have given me a free upgrade to Logos 5 and I have been getting used to it for the last 5 weeks or so. First let me encourage you why to buy this product if you don't have a digital Bible and…

Our family have just come back from an excellent time at Spring Harvest. Here are the 5 highlights for me of the event. 1. Confidence in the Gospel The theme of the event this year was "The Source: encountering Jesus Today" at the heart of this was a need for us to recover Jesus at the centre of our identity (BE) our words (SAY) and our actions (DO). It was great to be at an event that made sure evangelism was at the centre of the churches mission alongside doing…

I loved my iPad. It was barely out of my reach for the two years since they first came out. I was an early adopter and was completely won over by the portability, interactivity of the tablet experience. I used my Ipad mainly for email, diary, web surfing and lots of fun with the children playing games together. I wrote a chunk of one of our books on it on frequent train journeys into London. But something happened in November that means I have hardly used my Ipad recently My…

Google gave a glimpse into the future today - with this sneak peak of what life lived through "Google glass" will feel like. I must admit i find it both a cool and chilling future. I love the idea of being connected and that my reality is augmented by interaction with friends, sharing video on demand etc. But because these videos feel like you are looking through the eyes of the Terminator or Robocop its raises questions whether this form of technology will help us to become more human or…
