comMUNism site gets over 27 000 hits in one weekend!


164 delegates from 11 International Schools in 8 different countries came together at ISM this past weekend for the first ever paperless IASAS MUN conference.  It was a wonderful weekend filled with passionate debates, frantic placard waving, resolution writing, surprising superlatives, classy business attire  and hilarious analogies.  These elements are all characteristic of a typical MUN conference, however, one thing was missing – the note passing and piles of paper generated from writing, editing and re-writing speeches and resolutions.  ISM went completely paperless with each delegate accessing all necessary documents via USB and the IASAS MUN website. “Notes” were passed between students via Skype rather than in the hands of Pages and the whole event was documented- live- on the comMUNism (COMmunications of MUN at ISM ) website and Twitter feed. The comMUNism site recorded over 27, 000 hits as of 8 am on Sunday morning, indicating that MUN supporters from all over the world were checking in with us to see how the debates and resolutions unfolded over the weekend.  Congratulations to the ISM MUN team and directors for organising a wonderful conference.  If you couldn’t be here with us, or didn’t know about comMunism, hop over to the site to get caught up on what you missed.
