University of Florida Tech-enabled Wall of Civility

The Bob Graham Center for Public Service at the University of Florida has launched a new tech installation called the Civil Debate Wall that provides students with the opportunity to weigh in on different debatable topics and join in a discussion that is framed in a civil way. After registering their opinions on the current debate topic or in response to another prior student post, students have their picture taken by a wall mounted camera and their comments appear on one of 5 touchscreen monitors and on the project webpage found at http://www.civildebatewall.com . Comments can also be entered via the webpage but the photo option is not yet available via the web interface. The project was funded by a grant from the Knight Foundation. More details on the project are available in this story from Inside Higher Education.
