I find that teaching civic education is more interesting now that I have 1:1 devices. The ability to find information is amazing,but I struggle with how to engage students in the tough conversations. I recently held a structured academic conversation on Gun Control, but students were not into it. The issue of how to prepare came up and what the next steps should be. I now reach out to the civic education network - what should happen now? We have google docs and the ability to present. WHere do I go from here?

I'm having an observation next week from our district's consulting firm
and they want to see the use of our 1:1 technology in the classroom. I
am teaching the Constitutional Convention that day and am looking for an
engaging lesson that involves technology. Any ideas??
