To see some great images of students participating in mock elections this week, check out the #kidvote hashtag. One particularly active teacher is METC Spotlight Educator Krissy Venosdale of Hillsboro, Missouri. She’s documenting every step of her students’ election process- voting, tabulating, reporting, and Skyping- over several media platforms. You can find links to them all at her Twitter feed, including their mock election results. Remember, for those of you 18 and over voting in the real election, the closing time for Missouri polls is 7 p.m. central time; the Show-Me State is worth 10 electoral votes in the presidential race.
Missouri has three edcamps taking place this fall and winter! Edcamp is free, participant-driven professional development for teachers. Upcoming locations and dates:
Edcamps bring together those interested in learning & sharing more about best practices in education in an unconference format. This format allows the knowledge and interests of those in attendance to lead the conversations. All are welcome to join for a great day of conversations about solutions on how to build the best classrooms, schools and communities for the future.
While the edcamps are free to attend, organizers of each would like preregistration. Click on the logos included in this post to go to the specific edcamp website. If you are not able to attend an edcamp in person, you can follow the conversation by reading tweets with hashtags like #edcampsgf, #edcampKC, #edcampSTL.
