The book is about exploring and presenting a model of digital-based curriculum for Christian education suitable for the digital ways of learning, communicating, and thinking. I talk about limitations of analog-based curricula, most of current curricula, and necessities for digital-oriented ones. Then, I provide a new model of curriculum, curriculum as software. Curriculum as software is a curricular framework for embracing digital culture like open-flat network, service-centered management, Interactive communication, and offline-online hybrid learning space. It consists of four spiral stages: Analysis, Design, Simulation, and Service. In the process of Designing units, 4R Movement, a new learning theory, is utilized to encourage today’s young people to construct their own knowledge after critically analyzing various resources of information. 4R-embeded courses are implemented in the four movements: Reflection, Reinterpretation, Re-formation, and Re-creation.
