I would like to get with another debate classroom in another part of the country (perhaps a more isolated area such as Alaska- we met some debaters from ALaska at Nationals last year) using Skype just so we could start a discussion on next years debate topic.
The objective would be to create affirmative and negative positions after collaborating on what the topic contains and how to approach it. We would then do our own research and share this with each class room. Also, we can have individual students either perform live or video themselves and send these videos to our sister school for practice evaluation. Ultimately, it would culminate in an online debate between the two classes, with all participating and judging the event. Might be cool!
