I agreed to teach a high school religious education class next Sunday night. The topic is “What is Social Justice and what can we do to achieve it.” Since it’s with High schoolers I want to incorporate a “Social meida” component and get them talking/thinking about how, if at all, using social media can help achieve Social justice. I’ve jotted some ideas below, but please – add your thoughts and comments as well!
The story of Twestival – talk about it, show various tweets
Would you consider “texting a number to make a donation” use of social media?
Would you consider the use of Facebook and the role it played in the Arab spring examples of “Social Justice”?
Does “putting conference t-shirts on e-bay” and having the money go to charity count as using social media for social justice?
Other examples? Thanks in advance for any feedback
