The iVote 2012 project in the iCollaboratory is ready for you and your students to join!

Have you ever wondered who would be elected if students could vote? Do your students know about the candidates that could become President of the United States?
In this project, students take a demographic survey, researc
h presidential candidates, create political advertisements and participate in a mock election just a few days before the national presidential election. You can compare the student vote to the national vote! 

Timeline:
  • You can join the project any time in September by taking the demographic survey
  • Complete research about the candidates by October 7
  • Finish creating web posters October 14
  • Study and comment on iCollaboratory student web posters October 15-26
  • Vote in our mock election October 27-November 1
  • View results on November 2
