Global Citizen Series: Social Media & Politics

Celebrate the National Elections by discussing Social Media Usage in Politics with Partners nationally or globally

October 26th - November 6th

"Peace, stability, human rights and effective governance based on the rule of law are important conduits for sustainable development. We are living in a world that is increasingly divided. Some regions enjoy sustained levels of peace, security and prosperity while others fall into seemingly endless cycles of conflict and violence. This is by no means inevitable and must be addressed."

For this course, each classroom will:

  • Be paired with another classroom of students outside their local region.
  • Research and discuss the pros and cons of social media around political events.
  • Use LUV's secure teacher-monitored platform to exchange two videos over the course of the two-week connection with their partners.
  • Create one or more Public Service Announcement (PSA) to share with their partners.

A complete curriculum and guidelines for creating the PSA are provided. Each course requires approximately 4 hours of class time over 2 weeks.

Engage your students in an innovative and authentic collaborative experience!

Deadline to Sign Up: October 19th
