Journeys in Film just posted this on Facebook and it looks like an AMAZING opportunity for students around the world to discuss issues that concern them. There's a toolkit and all sorts of resources on the BBC web site to support this online discussion which is slated to start TOMORROW! I wish I had known about this earlier.
From the BBC web site:
Over twenty-four hours, we will provide a platform for schools across the globe to debate and discuss, share concerns and ideas about what really matters to them. And we want your school to be part of it.
BBC World Service will be live in schools all over the world with special news bulletins on air throughout the day.
Your school can interact live on the BBC website, find out what is important in other schools, and share what your pupils are doing.
I'll be check out this web site during the next few days for sure! Let us know if you decide to participate and how it goes.
