2010 Presidential Address: Learning Religion and Religiously Learning amid Global Cultural Flows
Hess, Mary E.
Religious Education, v106 n4 p360-377 2011
Emerging social media that build on digital technologies are reshaping how we interact with each other. Religious education and identity formation within these new cultural flows demands recognition of the shifts in authority, authenticity, and agency that are taking place, as well as the challenges posed by "context collapse." Digital storytelling is one mechanism by which religious educators can help people to apprentice into practices shaped by a commitment to human freedom and relationality, rather than to public performances of hatred.
