Trending topics, C-Span?! | March 24, 2010

On Sunday, I sat down and watched C-Span for longer than I ever have in my life. I don’t know about anyone else but watching “C-Span” rise as a trending topic on twitter made my heart go pitter-patter (a historic once in a lifetime event?). I have been talking to some friends about the effect new media had on public opinion regarding this legislation. I will post more about that in a couple of days.

What do you think?

About author

Focusing on the Southwestern Pennsylvania region, CivicsLab puts elementary and middle school students in virtual control of decision-making in their communities to encourage civic participation, critical thinking, and sense of place. In CivicsLab, players will assume positions of power in the community from an urban, suburban or rural perspective and explore how decisions-based on social need and demand, proper planning (as defined by our civic experts), political pressure, and most importantly, their imaginations-might impact the community. Through manipulation of real mapping information and current data sets, students navigate social and political pressures to explore the cause and effect of civic investment and public policy as they attempt to create a sustainable future for their region.
