Faith and Life Online Announces New Look and Feel for Fall 2017

Animated sacramental videos and video summaries. 
It helps parents become primary educators, allows students more time for interaction and engagement, and assures parishes that consistent information is being learned. The new, brighter colors, with scaled and age appealing images, are a result of these conversations. It has been estimated that 20-26% of students have some sort of IEP or learning challenge, so the goal was to make these lessons as inclusive as possible. Rich in resources to help coordinate and manage efforts (Catechist Certification Management), dioceses can connect members from virtually any device or any location. Share

Inclusion is KeyWhile revising the Faith and Life Series, MCFD consulted with parents and teachers of children with special needs. My Catholic Faith Delivered provides an online system that can reach the widest possible audience. We have been working closely with My Catholic Faith Delivered who has exceeded our expectations for customer support." — Bernadette Myers, Coordinator of Religious Education, Curé of Ars Catholic Church, Leawood, KS. "The Flipped Classroom approach using My Catholic Faith Delivered has allowed us to serve our families better. We must ensure learning takes place! Questions and key ideas are presented one-by-one, rather than in a long list, allowing for precious "wait-time." Some elements of the lesson, such as the pre-assessment, can be skipped if it is too stressful for a student. Interactive learning includes videos, games, discussion questions, reflections, links to more information, etc. Entertaining videos and images aren’t enough… Students will continue to learn about the Sacraments, morality, social teaching, and the life and mission of the Church. The vocal speed is slower than before and at times the voice over will be done by children (kids love to hear and watch other kids). Flipping the Classroom is great way to pass on the Faith by incorporating online learning. Faith formation programs align with desired outcomes unique to each diocese or apostolate and are generally aligned to learning outcomes from the National Directory of Catechesis supported by the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
