So, I follow Mike Stuchbery on twitter, and he's been trying to help his civics students get into politics a little bit more, get engaged in the process. In particular, he's set up a blog for his students called Aussie Democrazy, as well as setting up a Twitter and Facebook. Now, I know that a few of you are happily into politics, and I'm sure a few of you would be happy to help a few kids get engaged with politics, so here's your chance! In particular, they're asking a few public questions to give the kids some insight into why we find politics so interesting. Also, they're trying to convince a few politicians and political journalists to do some interviews with the Democrazy kids.

Honestly, it's a fantastic idea. We keep despairing at how people aren't engaged with politics anymore, that we don't have people who really care about the process. Well, here's someone who's doing something about it! Using the power of social media to help students find a reason to be passionate about politics. I would have loved something like this at my school. I definitely recommend people have a look at their work, it's fantastic!
