Welsome to my first post. I hope to discuss the world of debate and it relation to technology innovation, multi-media, and education. I think blogs can be a great addition to the debate world, unifying it and creating places for chat and discussion. Debate is the best game in town for any high school student; it can teach them vital critical thinking skills, persuasiveness, the ability read and process material quickly, and to write at a mich higher level than their peers. I hope the 11 tools exercises can help this become reality as well. We will see!
