|Online Debate with University students on Development Education|
University students of an "Information Technology for Teachers" graduate course at the University of Nicosia, Cyprus were asked to participate in an online discussion within the Development Education Forums about the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). They were first asked to watch two videos and then search for relevant information on the web in order to be able to give answers to the following questions:
They had 30 minutes to get themselves familiar with the topic and write their responses to the two questions within the forum. Everyone was very positive throughout the process. Most of them had never heard of the MDGs before and as future educators they were eager to learn more. Reviewing their responses in the forum, one can observe the effort that was made and the interesting ideas and opinions elaborated by the students.
