Communication and Mercy: A Fruitful Digital Encounter

Workshop Number: 
B-04

In this year's World Communications Day Message Pope Francis recognized the potential for authentic communication inherent in modern digital technology and social media. However, he also recognized their potential to disconnect and alienate. How can we use digital technology and media in the classroom in a way that fosters meaningful dialogue, enlightens the learner and evangelizes? Participants will gain a better understanding of how the use of digital technology affects the learner, the learning environment, and how it can be employed to enhance learning, catechize, and evangelize.
