From the 10Questions Blog:
"Teachers around the world have looked to the web to impress the values of civic participation upon their students, so what better platform to teach them about campaigns and elections than 10Questions, a forum in which their students’ questions just might be answered by the presidential candidates?
To address this, we've added a new section to the site called “Student Voices.” It's accessible via a new tab on right-hand side of 10Questions tab bar:
The tab takes you to a page featuring only videos uploaded by -- you guessed it -- students. It’s part of our new push to get high school students to participate on the site.
To help with this outreach, we’ve added the educational video sharing site TeacherTube to the list of video platforms you can use to upload your questions to 10Questions. TeacherTube is also now a co-sponsor of the project, and it will be encouraging its users to post videos to the site. We also hope to have teachers blog about their experiences making videos with their classes...
We’re really excited about this partnership and the chance it gives us to involve more students in the electoral process. Welcome TeacherTube!"
