How Canada's Young People are Using Online Dialogue to Collaboratively Define their Vision for the Next 150 Years

Presented at 2017 OAGEE Fall Conference from November 10th to November 11th, 2017

"What do Canada's young people want the next 150 years in Canada to look like and why?" Since September 2017, Canadian students from diverse communities across the country have come together to address this question and create a collaborative Next 150 Vision by participating in the national and bilingual Next 150 / Les Prochaines 150 Années online discussion project on WorldVuze, (worldvuze.com/150), a safe and free global K-12 discussion platform. In this session you will learn how students are using this platform's unique technology to safely share and explore a diversity of perspectives from students across the country, helping to bridge the communication gap that exists between Canadian young people from diverse cultures and geographies, Indigenous and Non-Indigenous, Francophone and Anglophone, north and south, east and west, rural and urban. The Next 150 discussion questions on WorldVuze fall under the following 5 themes: - Responsible Citizenship, - Canadian Identities, - Rethinking Our Past, - Sustainable Future, and - Canada's Leadership in the World In this session, we will also draw from classroom case studies to illustrate how teachers and students across Canada are using The Next 150 discussion to deepen their learning through inquiry-based activities, which you can start using now in your own classroom, as well as opportunities for your class to add their voice to and leverage this dialogue into real-world social change.
