How I Use It
My sophomore students at El Capitan High School where the first students to participate in an online Google Plus Connected Classroom. I have attached a youtube video of the debate here : http://youtu.be/M_o5so6X5C8 Originally Streamed live on Feb 5, 2014 Topic #2: Digital Footprint: Should colleges be allowed to take your 'digital footprint' (social media presence, Google results, etc.) into consideration when making their admissions decisions? Moderator: Christoph Guttentag, Dean, Undergraduate Admissions, Duke University
My Take
This was a wonderful experience for my students. It was very easy to set up. I did have a lot of support from our IT staff. The students loved the experience. This activity inspired my students to begin a forensic and debate team on our campus.
