Project SOMEONE (Social Media EducatiON Every day) is based on open discussions on social and political issues, which proved to be positively correlated with critical thinking skills, tolerance of different viewpoints and commitments to civic engagement. Explore the benefits and challenges of having these discussions with students. Building on the experiences of participating teachers, this webinar provides strategies for facilitating inclusive dialogue as well as an overview of Project SOMEONE’s web portal of multimedia, curricular and public engagement initiatives.
