Classrooms applying and Judges and Volunteers fill in the same online form: http://tinyurl.com/Eracism13-1. We need more classrooms from all over the world to take part!

What teachers said about Eracism 12-2:

Hearing how the other teams debated was fascinating because we learned about how/what other people think about key global issues.
Working with the students in my school in a different context was a spectacular opportunity to know them better.
Loved the whole thing. Despite the amount of work and sacrifice it entailed, it was a ton of fun and our team learned a lot about debating. Next time, we will be more prepared.
The final live debate was a highlight!
This makes learning applicable and real for the students. They no longer care about a grade, but instead want to do well as the world listens in.

Learning Management System

My school system will soon discuss which learning management system would be best to use with our students. I say, "Why choose one?" Web/cloud based system rarely require 3rd party assistance, i.e., system IT people.  The more experience students get with using a variety of LMS, the better. Suggestions?See More
