"The administration never saw it coming"

The headline is an interesting quote from Clay Shirkey in this brief (5 minute) video on the use of social media tools. He discusses this while raising the question on what should be the skills taught in the classrooms to prepare our students for the 21st Century?

50,000 school students organized in 48 hours. Now there is motivation around a purpose!

What would it take to get 10,000 Franklin residents out to the polls to vote on November 3rd?

Note: there are over 19,000 Franklin registered voters but off year elections generally turnout around 3500. Off year elections are those not associated with a national election (every four years). An override election can draw up to 8,000.

Thanks to Mr Bryne at Free Technology for Teachers for the tip to the video
