Religion eTextbooksIn 2011, Archbishop Chapelle set up a PDF site license with Ave Maria Press. They have been using the iPad App GoodReader to view, highlight, take notes, and comment. But more importantly, they are using the device as a tool to increase faith. “We’re trying to make this a tool for the girls to really enhance their faith, not just use it as a secular device,” Maria Steen, religion department chair and campus minister, said. “We are using the iPad as a way to foster faith. It’s a new way to evangelize.”

Ave Maria Press offers all high school textbooks in electronic formats. For more information visit www.avemariapress.com/etextbooks.

The catechetical staff also shares tips for teaching with technology on the Engaging Faith blog.
