Technology for Christians

Christians must ask how their faith relates to technology class. To begin with, God is the mind and heart behind all of our technological wonders. It follows that He has great plans and purposes for technology. Thus, technology class exists not just to learn the how-to’s, but the why’s. What can make a Christian technology class different from a secular one?
Too often our paradigm of education (largely molded by the secular public school) focuses on the teaching knowledge and skills. In technology class, kids likely learn how to use programs, basics of how computers operate, perhaps programing skills. However, children also need to learn that God has plans to use technology to share His love. Thus, children who enjoy technology should see it as a gift of our good God and capture a vision of how they might use it to spread His kingdom through invention and use - never forgetting to mention its origin and moral parameters.
