Get Voting - School elections made easy

Get Voting - School elections made easy | HSIE civics and citizenship | Scoop.it

The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) has produced a range of downloadable resources for running school elections. The resources model good democratic practice and address outcomes in the Social Systems and Structures strand of the HSIE K-6 Syllabus.

Katey Fotheringham's curator insight, April 13, 2014 9:05 AM

Get Voting is an excellent teacher resource for school elections. It provides teachers with the guidelines, templates and forms to run a school election in a simple and easy to use format. Students can actively learn about the electoral process by creating and participating in the voting process. Through active participation in this process students are also learning about their voting responsibility as an Australian citizen and the value of voting.

This resources links to the social systems and structures strand of the stage 3 HSIE syllabus SSS3.8. Activities to engage students with electoral process include students taking responsibility for counting and analyzing votes. These activities allow for the integration of numeracy to the learning experience, in particular the content descriptor ‘data representation and interpretation’ for mathematics can be addressed.  

The use of the teaching pedagogy active learning makes this teaching resource is so valuable. As described by Vygotsky’s constructivism theory the active learning and social learning of children creates a more meaningful learning experience. This resource can be use to link to the introduction of human rights and the history of Indigenous peoples right to vote.
