First, we must acknowledge learning and communication has changed dramatically with technology. Students, as well as adults, depend upon technological devices for learning and communication. Furthermore, communication is an essential component in reflecting the image of God. Therefore, a Christian educational institution has the responsibility of equipping students with technological knowledge and skills to advance God’s kingdom and not merely as personal entertainment.
Second, we must accept that technology and the internet are neither good nor evil. It’s how a person uses them that matters. The information age requires that we focus on training students, not only with more information, but with wisdom to navigate and use that information. Putting technological devices in the hands of students becomes a teaching opportunity for “equipping students to be mature disciples of Christ” in the technocentric world they are entering.
