Presented at:
SCL Conference 2013

ABSTRACT:

Information technology can be a great tool for education, but as Christian educators we must think critically about the technology that we adopt into our lives. This seminar will look at the ethical dilemmas posed by some of the most popular aspects of modern information technology and examine the response that we should have as Christians attempting to live virtuously in an increasingly virtual world.
