Virtual Argumentative Experiences

The Virtual Debate project began as a way to infuse technology into an authentic argumentative experience by giving students an audience. To get started with the Virtual Debate, students in two classes agree to engage with one another and select a topic based on their interests and passions. Past topics have included police presence in schools, digital detox, competitive sports, and social media in schools. After selecting a topic, the two classes face off in a coin toss through Google Hangouts to decide the pro and con sides.
