2. October 2008 Student Political Issues Month
We plan to have our students have a discussion about political issues and share this across
classroom, institution, state, United States, and the World.
In October 2008 we will engage our students around building a student driven political agenda.
We will use classroom, institutional and regional conventions along with internet based
discussion and other web-based technology to have synchronous and asynchronous
discussion.
Students will be able to have a discourse with groups from various educational institutions
throughout the globe. We are encouraging a select number of real-time Internet conferences
using either audio or audio and video links during October.
The tools used for discussion including the internet and other technology such as phone
conferencing will depend on the participant’s access as well as the interest in such interactions.
We are encouraging even small groups of students and/or faculty from an individual institution
to participate. The more institutions from across the globe represented the better reflection of
world concerns will be addressed on the final agenda --thus reflecting the global concerns. If
you are interested in participating in a live video internet or audio discussion with your students,
we already have several classes and different institutions ready to participate. Additionally, we
will help coordinate various institutions discussion.
The discussion between peoples from around the world can foster empathy and support for
global concerns, and help develop peaceful strategies for making demands that can lead to
responses that will alleviate or solve these concerns.
We plan to take the student agenda and develop a series of “Candidate Job Interview”
questions to be administered to candidates running for office. We will team with the television
representatives to offer state and national candidates and opportunity to participate in this
unique format.
