This age-appropriate presentation combines multi-media and magic to highlight the pros and cons of social media and the need for us to always THINK for ourselves. We discuss how communication has evolved and how the present forms could cause us to miss out on important features of daily life, like play, nature, activities with our friends and family interaction.
This program is based on the 7 HABITS outlined in the work of Sean Covey (“The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens,” “The 7 Habits of Happy Kids”).
With a combination of multi-media and magic, Mr. Jim connects 7 timeless habits that are at the foundation of his success as a school presenter, prestidigitator and author.
