WHAT: A collaborative US election experience for students aged 12-18. The project matches classrooms in remote locations via Cricket’s ePals Global Community and the Second Avenue Learning app, to collaborate and exchange cultural and political information and to study the process and history of electing a US president. Students share their opinions and debate topics, learn about the electoral college and use the app to create state-by-state election prediction maps.

WHY: Students globally can become actively involved in a very dramatic current US election. They use higher-order thinking skills to compare and analyze election processes in the US with other countries, formulate key questions, debate important issues, study the candidates, predict the election’s outcome in red and blue states and finally, predict the next US president!
