Touch and Go: Countdown to an Election
This is a great posting on the latest apps for your e-Device related to the upcoming presidential election. Some of these are general apps that anyone can use, and others are specifically made for teens and younger children to help them make sense of this momentous day in our history. Better still, many of them are available at no charge or for a modest fee.
Now, if you’re one of the lucky ones out there that has a budget to provide iPads for student use, you are luckier still! There are so many apps out there that deal with the election and politics in general, that it seems like you could develop an excellent lesson on the Electoral College or have students do some fact finding on these distinguished historical figures going all the way back to George Washington himself. Not that you couldn’t do something good without the technology, but students sure do get a kick out of using the iPad.
