The students at Amman Baccalaureate School in Amman, Jordan investigated the important issue of media and social technology and its effect on culture in collaboration with the Tallwood High School, Virginia, USA. Together they created an awareness campaign about the problem, and the students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
“We have created a video raising awareness about the growing domination of technology and social media, and its effect on culture. We explore how false depictions in the media can lead to stereotypes, and encourage viewers to think about how reliable their sources are before they make judgments!”
This student project was created as part of YouthTalk 2015-16, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US and the Arab World. YouthTalk is run by the Global Nomads Group, in partnership with Bridges of Understanding.
