Election Reflection

For my presentation on VoiceThread for the Francis Howell Tech Fest today, I created a “Reflect As We Elect” thread for reflecting about Election Day 2008.

Unfortunately, the standing room only crowd did not get a chance to add their reflections due to issues with the LAN and wireless access. I hope that some will attempt to leave their reflections tonight or within the next few days. I am inviting you to also reflect on the VoiceThread and share it with others, including your students. The reflection questions the thread focuses on are as follows:
  1. Today we elect the 44th president of the United States of America. Who was your favorite president? Why?
  2. Some of the Top Issues of the 2008 Election are:
    Energy and Climate Change
    Health Care
    International Relations
    The Economy
    And Trade
    What issues are most important to you? What issues do you think should be important to everybody?
  3. In your opinion, what are the most important qualities that a person running for President of the United States should have?
  4. What encourages people to vote? What are some reasons people may decide not to vote?
  5. I am proud to be an American because…
I look forward to your reflections and comments:-)
