Jott the Vote!

I was just checking my email and received a message from Jott. Jott has set up a mobile campaign, where anyone with a Jott account (it's free) can send a Jott message to any 2008 presidential candidate's campaign! The site also includes statistics of which candidates have been Jotted the most. This could be an engaging activity for secondary social studies students who are studying current events or the presidential campaign. They could research candidates, then select a candidate to Jott a question concerning their platform. Teachers and students can also copy the source-code of their favorite candidates to their class blog or website to watch current Jotts. Students could even create a blog site for their favorite candidate, promote their platform, and include the Jott The Vote Widget!
