DeepDebate in the Classroom

by

Here are some of our pilot projects that we’ve already conducted in classrooms in DC and Pennsylvania.

We’ve had a lot of questions from other teachers about how DeepDebate can be used in education.  Here’s what we’ve come up with so far.  What do you think?

  • History: students can debate different sides of a controversial event
  • Foreign Languages: students can converse with each other in a second language– this could be lots of fun as a class-to-class pen pal program with schools overseas
  • Math: students can comment on each other’s solutions to word problems and learn from each other
  • Civics/Government: students can debate current events and politics
  • Logic/Philosophy: students can practice analytic thinking and sound reasoning (this is useful in any classes)
  • Science: students can debate alternate hypotheses
  • Literature: students can discuss fiction and the reasons for characters’ actions
