Sign up for May’s Tech Tuesday featuring Consider.it

NCDD’s next Tech Tuesday event on May 5th will feature Consider.it, a social technology that lets people deliberate on an issue together online. Registration is now open, so sign up today to reserve your spot!

Consider.it was created as an interdisciplinary project througTech_Tuesday_Badgeh a grant from the National Science Foundation. The software focuses dialogues on a specific idea, encourages users to think about both sides of the idea, listen to and include the thoughts of others and express a nuanced opinion. Consider.it shows what thousands of people think about an idea on a histogram and why they think this way with a ranked list of all points from most persuasive to least persuasive.  These results show the common ground, sticking points and misconceptions that a facilitator can address to build consensus. For the past five years, Consider.it has powered the award winning Living Voter’s Guide, an interactive voters guide used by tens of thousands of Washington voters.

Join us as co-founder Kevin Miniter discusses how to use Consider.it to help create more thoughtful dialogues online for groups of all sizes.  Kevin will tell us more about the software and how it works, share some case examples, and talk with us about ways in which we might use Consider.it in our work.

This FREE event will take place on Tuesday, May 5 from 2-3pm Eastern/ 11am-12pm Pacific. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to experience this great tool – register today!

Tech Tuesdays are a series of learning events from NCDD focused on technology for engagement. These 1-hour events are designed to help dialogue and deliberation practitioners get a better sense of the online engagement landscape and how they can take advantage of the myriad opportunities available to them. You do not have to be a member of NCDD to participate in our Tech Tuesday learning events.
