Product Description

This resource from Graeme Mitchell at SustainEd introduces learners to the highly relevant idea of upgrading our democracy and complements Pia Mancini’s TED Talk, “How to upgrade our democracy for the Internet Era.” The resource includes a printable worksheet and teacher’s guide, and also comes with an online Google Slides option which is compatible with Google Classroom.  The captivating TED Talk explores how Mancini and her team invented an app, DemocracyOS, to change the way citizens engage with the political process in the 21st century. The results of her efforts have played an impressive role in Argentinian politics and may serve as a road map for other nations looking to revitalize their democratic institutions.

The TED Talk, guide, class discussion, and ‘more to explore’ option are all designed to be completed in one class period.  This resource can also be used to supplement student learning or assigned as homework/extra credit. This turn-key guide is also ideal for substitute teachers and requires no pre-planning.

From TED:

Pia Mancini and her colleagues want to upgrade democracy in Argentina and beyond. Through their open-source mobile platform they want to bring citizens inside the legislative process, and run candidates who will listen to what they say.
