What does it mean to “speak social”? And how is it different from face-to-face interaction? This year’s CID Video Competition asks How do social media influence intercultural dialogue? so, presumably, knowing how to “speak social” would be one good beginning point.
No, I’m not going to answer the question – that’s for those who are putting together videotapes to submit to the competition! I just thought it might be useful as a prompt while you’re working.
Hint: be sure to address both what intercultural dialogue is, and what happens when you use social media to connect to someone of a different cultural group; do not just explain social media! This video competition asks you to combine the two elements.
The CID video competition for 2019 is open for submissions until May 31, 2019. If you have questions, see previously published competition rules, FAQ, and resources. See last year’s winning videos. See the reflection by one winning team on creating their video. Or send an email with a question.
