Are you ready to “Think Outside ‘da Box”? If yes, I want to tell you about a new website called Catechesis 2.0. This site was launched on Thursday, May 10 during the National Conference of Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) post-conference workshop CaTECHesis with HOT TECH Tools.
54 workshop participants attended. They were introduced to 20 (mostly free) Web 2.0 tools. The website features these tools and the blogging team, beginning June 1, 2012, will continue to add new tools to the blog.
Often catechists, RCIA coordinators, youth ministers, school teachers , and others would like to use technology in their lessons. All of you will now have a resource to come to for potential tools. What is exciting is that all of us can contribute in some way to share what we are doing with web tools in our ministries.
Often students may be directed to complete a project from their home computers and shared with the class, families, or the world! Or if there is wi-fi access, you may invite them to use their mobile tools. Of course, if there is an available computer lab, you may complete a project in the lab. It is a time to develop wonderful Digital Disciples. Web 2.0 tools can provide you a way to be creative with those who are participating in your faith formation programs.
