Teaching, Technology, & Faith Workshop
Led by: Robert Keeley, Kara Sevensma, & Marj Terpstra
Larry Cuban wrote that in adopting and implementing technology educators must begin with one crucial question: To what end?
As schools and teachers embrace technology, we must make critical decisions about how, when, and why we will use technology. We must ask ourselves “to what end?” Those who take part in this workshop will examine Christian pedagogy in technology-rich environments by engaging in integrated on-campus and online experiences. As we learn together, we will bring theology, philosophy, and educational research to bear on how we make decisions about technology selection and implementation in classrooms. This will lead us into constructive exploration of how technology offers novel opportunities for enhancing a Christian pedagogy. Readings, videos, discussions, collaborative projects, and hands-on technology exploration will be combined to create learning experiences applicable to each of our classrooms.
