Free Technology For Teachers: The Davos Question Part II

Yesterday, I posted a video from the World Economic Forum that is meeting in Davos, Switzerland this week. I posted the question and wrote that it would be a great conversation starter with your students because it is such a large and open ended question, “What one thing do you think that countries, companies or individuals must do to make the world a better place in 2008?” Today I posed the question to my class and they really ran with it. Then I told them that they can actually participate in the discussion by creating a video and submitting it to the convention via a Youtube channel. So today we made a video and we’re hoping it gets seen at the convention.

Application for Educators
Participating in the Davos question online through the Youtube channel is a great way to teach students that they can participate and have a say in the direction the global society is moving. Many, if not all, students have used Youtube in some capacity, the Davos question Youtube Channel is a great way to get students excited about global citizenship and meet them where they are.

Below is the first cut of the video made in class today.
