Catechesis has been a critical part of Christianity since Biblical times, however the adoption of popular educational theories and technology to aid in catechesis has been slow. This research study shows the result of a review of current materials, surveys and in-depth interviews conducted with catechumens and catechists. It establishes that problem based learning, discussion based learning, formative assessment, spaced repetition and gamification can all be combined with traditional catechesis and technology to provide high quality catechesis. It in particular highlights that catechists and catechumens alike are keen to combine new approaches with traditional methods and each see benefits to the use of technology in catechesis.
