Due to many roadblocks that prevent students from interacting through YouTube Live, I have had to cancel this weeks Live Stream.
One of the challenges of student ministry is to use technology in a way that is beneficial without introducing unnecessary barriers or risks. That being the case, I discovered that using YouTube Live would introduce both to our students. Many of our students cannot access YouTube Live from their computers and others are unable to participate in chats due to age restrictions.
While the method I had planned to use won’t work, my goal is still the same. I want to engage with our students in a safe and responsible manner where they are participants and not simply spectators.
