It should come as no surprise that technology is an increasingly important component in education. But how can catechists makes use of these tools without breaking the parish’s budget? In this hour-long webinar Jonathan F. Sullivan will outline three simple strategies for using low-cost tech solutions that are approachable and appropriate for parish-based catechesis. He will also walk you step-by-step through three sample activities that utilize these strategies. Parish and diocesan catechetical leaders will also receive tips on how they can help catechists use technology responsibly.
Thank you to everyone who participated in my webinar “Using the Parish Web Site to Power Adult Faith Formation” sponsored by the Adult Faith Formation Committee of the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership! Here are the notes and links I mentioned during the presentation as well as the PowerPoint slides; I’ll have the video up as soon as it’s available.
Everyone knows that they “need” a web site for their parish — but what do you do with it once you have one? How can you best use your parish web site to reach out to adults? And what does this have to do with the “New Evangelization?”
This webinar, presented by Jonathan F. Sullivan, will assist parish catechetical leaders in strengthening their web site and other online platforms as an “engine” for adult faith formation. It will demonstrate the necessity of a modern, user-friendly web site and specific strategies for creating and maintaining a strong adult faith formation presence on a parish web site.
Online platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, webinars, and podcasts offer amazing opportunities for connecting to catechetical resources and leaders across the country — and the world!
How can you use these tools to develop your skills as a catechetical leader? What resources are available? And what are the best ways to find these resources?
I will explore these questions and offer practical tips and resources for using new media for professional development as a catechetical leader during a free webinar on Monday, August 6, at 1p (Central Time).
