Science & Technology Task Force

The science and technology task force explores new scientific advances and technological innovations in relation to the discipline of religious education. The task force seeks to identify emphases in natural and human sciences that often reshape our contemporary understanding of the nature of persons, religious experience, and social development. On alternate years the task force investigates how technological innovation influences pedagogical practices, cultural development, and religious community.

At the 2012 meeting in Atlanta, the Science and Technology task force hosted an in-house panel discussion in response to Sherry Turkle’s Alone Together:  Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other (Basic Books, 2011).
