These voters were m ost likely in high school the last time a president was elected. After a big turn-out of young voters helped push President Barack Obama to victory in the 2008 election, new voters have become a major focus for this year’s campaigns. So with both sides trying to turn young adults into their next party faithful, how does this next generation of voters decide which candidate is right for them?</p> Sun, 04 Nov 2012 15:00:00 +0000 Shelly Baskin 24042 at http://wkms.org How Will the Next Generation of Voters Pick a President? Bring Your Own Device to Graves County High School http://wkms.org/post/bring-your-own-device-graves-county-high-school-0 <p>In the Graves County High School library, Amanda Henderson introduces a group of the school&rsquo;s teachers to the new Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD program. Henderson is Graves County&rsquo;s District Technology Integration Specialist. The BYOD program she&rsquo;s discussing is a simple solution to a common problem. Schools need to keep their educational resources up to date, but lack the money to continually refresh them. Henderson says ideally, they would provide every student with their own computer, but in reality, it&rsquo;s just not feasible.</p> Sun, 05 Aug 2012 14:00:00 +0000 Shelly Baskin 20190 at http://wkms.org Bring Your Own Device to Graves County High School Graves Co.
