The Promise of Mobile Technology for Public Religious Education
Daily, Eileen M.
Religious Education, v108 n2 p112-128 2013
This article reviews the history of public religious education in the United States with an eye to its learning outcomes, contexts, and approaches. That history suggests that public religious education is still needed today but that informal learning contexts may be more appropriate than public schools. Recent trends in learning habits are then described and offered as a potential approach to public religious education. Finally, mobile technology is presented as a vehicle for public religious education using the described learning approaches. The article describes three examples of mobile applications that do or would fit these criteria. (Contains 1 table and 13 footnotes.)
