Catechists can integrate digital approaches that are age appropriate using good digital discipleship. What approaches have you tried? Is it time for you to seek digital training for yourself? Digital training is provided by the Office of Faith Formation. Develop a plan to integrate digital approaches in your faith formation sessions.
Why integrate digital technology in your faith formation sessions? If you want to meet your learners where they are, they are already tech savvy. Throughout the country, leaders in catechetical ministry have been networking to move forward in integrating digital approaches into ministry, especially faith formation.
Digital Disciples Bootcamp
Digital Discipleship Boot Camp (DDBC) was started in 2011 by Sr. Caroline Cerveny, SSJ-TOSF and Claudia McIvor, MSEd, in their home diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida. Their mission was to bring technology training to administrators, religious education catechists and teachers, principals and church staffs.
Digital Disciples Network
As participants graduated, the network of ministers comfortable with technology grew. And so evolved the Digital Disciple Network (DDN), a network that now includes hundreds of ministers who live in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Portugal.
Digital Discipleship Competencies
In 2017, DDN began to involve other organizations. A collaborative partnership developed with the Digital Disciple Network (DDN), National Association of Catholic Media Partners (NACMP) and the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA).
Digital Disciples Week is October 15-19
