Civic Engagement using Technology

Some of our 5th graders traveled to the polls today (located at our high school), to ask voters, "Why is it important to vote"?  They took along their iPads to capture their interviews.  These students have been studying government and the Presidential Election.  Together with their teachers, they decided what better way to learn about the value of voting, than to ask real voters.

The students were fortunate to also be interviewed themselves by reporters from The Valley News and WCAX Channel 3 News.  Not only were they interviewing voters, but they were able to share what they were learning with others.

Back at school students will complete a writing response about the information they collected.

Check out some of our students in action. WCAX.COM Local Vermont News, Weather and Sports-
