As this election season comes to a close we’ve been hearing how you’ve been using Edmodo to bring the debates and politics alive in the classroom – from Language Arts to Social Studies, getting students to participate can offer great learning opportunities and encourage them to be active citizens in the future!
Some of you have shared your classes’ view on the debates of this election through hashtagged polls and participation in our Election Insights Community. It’s great to bring the student voice to life. Today we’re launching a great way for your students to get their vote counted and participate in this year’s election – Edmodo Votes 2012.
To be a part of Edmodo Votes 2012 all you need to do is post a poll in your Edmodo groups, enabling students to place their vote for who they believe should be the next president. We’ll tally the results and share with the world just how students would vote.
- Login to Edmodo
- Create a poll asking students to cast their vote. Be sure to use the hashtag #edmodovotes2012 (Learn how to create a poll)
- Example: Which candidate would you vote for as our next President? #edmodovotes2012
- Run the poll with your class by Friday, November 2, 2012. We’ll compile the results and share them with you in advance of election day.
- Spread the word about Edmodo Votes 2012 on Twitter!
