Technology Tips for Religious Educators

I thought I would pass this message from Jared Dees (owner of the The Religion Teacher blog) on to you:

A few months ago I asked subscribers to complete a survey (you can participate here) to help me understand your greatest needs as religious educators. According to the responses, one of the biggest challenges that fans of The Religion Teacher face is effectively using technology.

On Thursday March 10, at 3:30pm EST, I will be presenting a free webinar on behalf of Ave Maria Press titled "Technology Tips for Religious Educators." Most of you know that my full-time job at Ave Maria Press involves technology and digital publishing. On Thursday, I will be sharing many of the tips and tricks I have learned using technology in the classroom.

Some of the topics I will cover include:
  • Teaching with e-books
  • Lecture and presentation ideas
  • Finding quality online resources
  • Integrating video and other multimedia into classroom instruction
To register for this free presentation, go to:

If this will be your first webinar, don't worry it is easy. Just click on the link to sign-up and fill out the registration information. You will receive an email with a link to join the webinar. On Thursday, open the email, click on the link, and you will be ready to view the webinar. You may need to download a small file from Go To Webinar, but in only seconds you'll be ready to participate.

This webinar is a part of an ongoing professional development webinar series presented by Ave Maria Press in partnership with the National Association for Lay Ministry and the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership.

I hope to "see" you all there!

I've just registered, and would very much like to join, but have just realised that it'll be Friday morning my time and I'll be on class. Enjoy! (And maybe if there's the possibility of a summary, someone could post that.)
