Since technological communication and research are basic life skills, they also serve as a foundation for a student’s success in school and a preparation for a productive and meaningful life in the community. Developmentally appropriate instruction must also include opportunities to encourage independent and life-long learning skills.
Because sharing the Gospel is central to a life of discipleship, it is only logical that computer technology skills are also part of any Christian curriculum.
