Fascinating Technology: Computer Games as an Issue for Religious Education
Scholtz, Christopher P.
British Journal of Religious Education, v27 n2 p173-184 Mar 2005
Computer games as an important part of youth culture can, from a certain perspective, be highly relevant for religious education. I will review the role of computer games, and then give a brief overview, suggesting a specific phenomenological approach for research on computer games and religious education. After presenting one example of such research I will explore the potential religious dimensions of computer games and raise the question of the possible consequences for religious education.
