Workshop 6: The Influence of the Digital Age in Faith Formation - A Media Literacy Response
Monday, 19 October 2009
15:00 – 16:30
Chiangmai Room IV – V, 2nd Floor, ECC
How do we develop critical awareness skills? What is a responsible use of technology? How do we deal with leisure time and how does this influence family life and building community? How can we, as people of faith, critically interact with society? As parents, teachers, catechists, clergy, religious and pastoral communicators, we are called to live and minister in this world today. This interactive workshop will identify ways that the converging media of the digital age influences faith formation and offer a media literacy education strategy as a response.
