Bells, Whistles and Digital Tools for the 21st Century Catechist

547

Published on

So you know you should be using Digital tools in your ministry! Yet, we find so many excuses to stay in our comfortable world. What steps do I take as a catechist to get on board with what the Pope has referred to as the Digital Continent? In this ever evolving collaborative and digital communications world, how do I stay abreast with what is happening all around me? With a limited budget, how do I stretch it to include technology? Where do I start? How do I share my success stories? Is Digital Discipleship and Digital Citizenship important today?
