Marine Science students in my courses do not only read about Marine related issues, they also discuss them and learn how to use persuasive language to convince their peers about their opinions on heated issues, such as research on Marine Mammals in captivity. The objective of the class debate was for each side to present about convincing argument during a classroom debate. I chose to use Padlet as a tool for students to collect resources such as texts, pictures, videos in preparation for the class debate.
תיאור קצר של ההתנסות:
The class was divided into two groups, Pro and Anti marine captivity and each group received their own Padlet wall to collect their information. The Padlet walls were directly embedded into a Moodle Page and each team could see what the other team was collecting. This helped them prepare their counter arguments for the debate. During the actual debate, the students had access to the Padlet wall with their materials which was screened overhead. If they wanted to show a movie that supported their cause, they could access it from Padlet easily and speak over the movie with their own explanations.
