Considering the environment of vital importance for all human beings and motivated by the recycling day that occurs on the 15th of November we had a relevant discussion with our first grade students of secondary school. Then we used TodaysMeet, a backchannel, which helps us conduct online discussions, while channeling the results onto the Interactive White Board, to suggest ways to save energy at our school.
Some of the ideas included in our online discussion were; turning off computers, lights and electronics when they are not in use, turning down the heat, minimizing the use of paper in handouts to students, recycling of paper, metal and glass products. Our students became aware of how important the environment is as it is the only home we have. It is where we live, breathe, eat and we should protect it by taking drastic action.
