CID’s second video competition is now over, and the judges have reviewed all the videos. As a reminder, the instructions were to answer the question How do social media influence intercultural dialogue? in 90-120 seconds, on video.
3rd prize goes to Sampson Siu Pak Hei, an undergraduate studying Public Relations and Advertising at Hong Kong Baptist University in Hong Kong.
Title: The Impact of Social Media on Intercultural Dialogue
Description: The video shows a “blind” experiment by asking two people of different nationalities to communicate and understand each other only using Facebook. The test demonstrates both the strengths and weaknesses of social media when used as a tool in intercultural dialogue.
There were first, second and third place winners. Each of these is being highlighted in a separate post, as they warrant our attention. My thanks to the judges of the competition, professionals who made time to review student videos. Thanks also to all the competitors, who took the time to really think about the question of how social media influence intercultural dialogue.
