This article presents the Christian Ethic of Care as a framework for classroom decision making with regards to new technologies exploding around the world, particularly how these disruptive technologies impact the teacher student relationship, exacerbating questions of trust and ethical conduct. The authors, both teacher educators, suggest a framework for decision-making based on Jesus' example of grace and truth when dealing with technology innovations that disrupt learning. Scenarios using the framework and practical considerations are presented that recommend rethinking numerous areas of pedagogy.
