Keeping up with technology in a Christian School

I do think that technology is helping societies interact in ways that were never possible before; Internet, multiple social networks and specially cellphones have had a great impact on society, human relationships and the way we communicate with each other. I am not writing today about the positive and negative aspects; the fact is that Cellphones have swarmed over our lives in the home, workplace, school and churches; they are the source for communication, interaction, entertainment, information, business, etc. Facebook, YouTube and Whatssap are the most commonly used by young and adult people alike.

To answer “how” is more than writing a certain-of-number-steps formula. A Christian teacher must come up with principles that will govern his life in the good use of technology and teach by example. I must find the balance and demonstrate what a life is with and without a cellphone.

“Everything is permissible,” but not everything is helpful. “Everything is permissible,” but not everything builds up.” (1 Corinthians 10:23)
