- We need to make online debate programming as accessible as possible by making tech as accessible as possible
How to Implement:
1 - Establish best tech practices across leagues
-Establish commonly used tech across leagues
-Select a platform or set of platforms that meet all needs and work together (i.e. Google Classroom)
-Consistent use of platforms, so students aren't always learning tech, but instead are spending time learning debate
2 - Survey students' tech needs and interest
-Survey - what do students have access / need access to?
-Survey - what tech do students (& parents) use & what are they comfortable with?
-Do surveys by phone if needed for students that can't/don't access online survey
3 - Make Training Accessible
-Support/training videos for tech help (not just dependent on tech, paper guides?)
-Webinars/interactive sessions that people could attend for training
4 - Empower students to teach
-Give students opportunities to teach tech to each other and us
