This App Helps Discourage Stereotyping Using Smartphone Based Interaction

A group of enterprising and innovative high school students at Los Gatos High School in California have developed an innovative prejudice awareness app that is designed to use education and discussion to spread awareness about common stereotypes and prejudices, as well as different forms of discrimination. Developed as part of the Filos Project, this prejudice awareness app uses a special algorithm that helps to draw on students' life experiences, problems and perceptions of each other, using that data to connect students with very different backgrounds, encouraging them to communicate and learn about each other. Given how much time young people spend on their phones, the Filos Project awareness app is a brilliant venture in that it uses this channel of communication for a good cause.
