This morning I read Tim Elmore’s latest blog post. The first 2/3rds of the post deal with the communication gap between the iY Generation and older generations. (The other 1/3rd of the post is a plug for Tim’s new book on the subjuct, “Habitudes for Communicators”. I plan on picking it up.) The post provides some good observations points to think about as you work to communicate effectively with your students.

What are some ways you are communicating with your students? What have you found to be difficult? What have you found to be effective?

You can find the post HERE.

FYI: I have used Dr. Elmore’s Habitudes and other resources and have found them very useful. See his website here.

Relevant Magazine is doing a “re-posting” of their best web content from the past year. I found this one, “We need boring Christians” interesting. I want to call your attention to it as well. (Maybe you saw it when it was first posted this year, I missed it.)

Andrew Byers (he blogs at Hopeful Realism) reminds us of the need and the importance of the the “dull labors and bewildering struggles that would make unexciting press” and the reality that “discipleship is often ugly, messy and painful.” I know I catch myself pointing my eyes and my students eyes toward the ‘radical’ and the clamorous more than I do toward the every day labor of being faithful where God has placed you and doing whatever we do for the honor and glory of Christ.

I think the reminder is worth reading – take a look at it and join in on the discussion.

I came across this infographic from Mashable via Hackcollege. It is worth some time. The world around us is becoming more connected and the cell phone / smart phone is playing a very big role. This infographic gives a great picture of how ‘connected’ college students are to their cell phones. You can find the article HERE. What are you thoughts?

BTW: Mashable is a great website/blog to follow for staying up with all things tech. I don’t know much about HackCollege.

UPDATE: Here is another interesting infographic on College web use. See it HERE.

Chuck Bomar put together a great article on college ministry over at College Leader. It is worth your time reading and thinking through. You can find the article here: ‘The Missing Piece’

A came across this article today on MASHABLE. This site is a great place to keep up with what’s happening in the world of technology. This article deals with collegiates and their use of technology. Take a look at it HERE.

I find myself pointing people to other post on this blog a great deal – I like to share what I find helpful. Today is no different. I came across this guest post on Faith On Campus to be very helpful. Check it out HERE. This is a guest post from Robert Henry.
