Debate and the World Debates with You
Read, Tina
Education in Science, n243 p18-19 Jun 2011
These days, many children do not enjoy the freedom to play outside. However, one of the advantages for children growing up now is the new technology that allows them to communicate with people their age, anywhere in the world. The author's company, Illumination Educational Software, decided to take advantage of these advances in technology to get young people around the world debating big issues, including how science can be used to make the world a better place. The company designed a system that could be used between people anywhere in the world as long as they have access to the Internet. It only takes a few minutes for teachers to learn how to set up and run a debate.
