Vatican diplomat warns against overreliance on digital technologies

CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Gabriele Caccia, apostolic nuncio and Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations, contributed to a recent UN meeting on “promoting a culture of peace in the digital era.”
“Digital technologies have an enormous impact on education,” said Archbishop Caccia. “They can be instrumental in fostering the values and goals of a culture of peace, but an over-reliance on them risks commodifying education, demoting it simply to a tool to transmit technical knowledge and depriving it of an essential human element.”
