  • eracism – Press release 13-1

    “”The use of Facebook by students around the world to communicate with one another does more harm than good.”” This is our topic for the Eracism 2013 project. You may wonder – why did we limit it to Facebook – well, after much– yes, — debate– on our end, every good debate topic should have compelling topics on both sides – we wanted to have compelling discussions around social media and keep with the original spirit of the 4 students who envisioned this project. They wanted to debate topics of importance to promote cultural understanding. If you want to sign up, this is linked to the 2013 press release that will tell you how to enter a team from middle up to high school (there are 2 brackets). We debate asynchronously in a method we call “simulated synchronous” until the finals, when we have a synchronous live debate in blackboard collaborate.
