Civic Engagement

This project builds on knowledge gained in the KS3 lesson ‘Twitter Battle’.
During this project, students will design a civic campaign that will get them to think about local or national issues that they can use technology to potentially help solve the problems. These may include things such as:
The environment
Future workforce
Transport issues
Issues that concern the students
Try to guide the students to pick issues that they can prototype possible solutions to with the SAM blocks available to them.
The students will share the ideas with the global community for feedback and discussion using Twitter, to help them guide and design the campaign. The students will: Consider relevant hashtags (#) and Twitter IDs (@) to share their campaign ideas
Review and reflect on the feedback and adapt their campaign
The students will use a range of SAM blocks to tweet about the campaign during the design stages.
