Model Assignment

Technology Rule of Life

Literacy: cultivating a spiritually wise digital habitus

Several of our favorite books on technology and faith, including Tweet If You ♥ Jesus and The Digital Cathedral, propose the idea of a technology rule of life. Lisa Kimball and Kyle Oliver turned the idea into an assignment in their Digital Media for Ministry class.

The purpose of this assignment is to help students reflect on how technology influences their life with God and to cultivate wise practices for making the best of that relationship.
