The Election and the Student Perspective
Posted by: Lucia Giacomantonio
Last month we launched our Election Insight’s Community and during the past eight weeks educators have been using the community as a resource to help teach their students about the democratic process, civic responsibility and what it means to be a well-informed citizen.
Through the community we’ve learned about the interesting ways educators are talking about the elections in their classrooms (such as back channeling during the debates), as well as the top issues that were of importance to students. The following infographic gives a snapshot of how students on Edmodo are talking about the elections. It outlines the percentage of mentions per candidate, the top issues being discussed and the top states (on Edmodo) talking about the elections.
If you’d like a copy of the infographic to share with your students, you can access it in the Election Insights Community.
Note: Next week we’ll be posting the results of Edmodo Votes 2012. Learn how you can participate!
