Diana Laufenberg is at the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia. They are one-to-one, high-tech laptop high school. She will look at their election-day project from 2008. Last year the election was all the rage in Philadelphia. Students used their cell phones and a call-in podcast to collect stories. Kids were sending photos from their phones into Flickr, posting simultaneous video from polling lines. She'll focus on the idea of students as their own recorder of history using tools they have in their own pocket, to be their own recorders of history and journalism.
