“The question is, how can we design an integrated system of tools that allows teachers to facilitate healthy debates regarding the future in the classroom?
Replicable, scalable and accessible tools for teachers
Digital tools such as social media instead of welcoming challenging opinions and showcasing diversity of thought foster the creation of echo chambers. As children grow into adults with the proliferation of social media as the communication norm, tools to combat these filter bubbles are not only required but necessary in education settings such as classrooms.
Additionally there exists an opportunity to leverage technology in the classroom to teach children about futures literacy, creating designated spaces within class time to co-create and imagine futures with their peers.”
