Welcome to Masonic Technology, a blog dedicated to sharing information about the usage of technology in Freemasonry. Over the course of the next few months this blog will house articles, how-tos, and reviews of various online tools that can be used to increase productivity, communication, and brotherhood electronically. Numerous industries and organizations have been putting the internet to good use for many years, and it is our desire to provide the knowledge needed for Masonic Lodges to do the same.
Masonic Technology is maintained by Brothers Dean Kennedy and Shane Stevens. Bro. Stevens is currently the Treasurer, Lodge Education Officer, and Webmaster for Delta Lodge #207 F. & A. M. in McArthur Ohio. His education includes a Bachelor’s degree in Education, a Master’s in Computer Education and Technology, and a Master’s equivalency in Education Administration.
Bro. Stevens has been a Technology Coordinator building representative, and a Technology Instructor both at the high school and collegiate level. His area of speciality is the integration of technology in learning environments, and is currently focusing on Web 2.0 online productivity tools.
It is our belief, that biggest obstacle to productive technology use is the uncertainty and lack of confidence of the audience, and with simple introduction of the skills needed any individual can be a Master.
