We're getting lots of attention from the educational technology community--- here are just a few of the many websites and public television stations that have featured our project.

  

“PBS has some good resources on civic engagement entitled Access, Analyze, Act: A Blueprint for 21st Century Civic Engagement.. “ http://www.hks.harvard.edu/saguaro/research/civiceducation.htm

   

“I'm going to be using a great deal of the PBS Election Resources (http://www.pbs.org/teachers/vote2008/), and a great deal of those materials involve blogging. I've already created a web page that my students can use in gathering information on the campaign (naturally, you or anyone else reading this are welcome to use or comment on it), and we're getting ready to start in the next few days creating blogs...” www.classroom20.com/xn/detail/649749
