How do the media habits of young Canadians relate to their propensity to vote? In this session, you’ll explore new research that describes how today’s highly accessible and customizable media environment both enhances and limits the ways relatively new voters access, connect and engage in the political process. Learn about the “voter participation trinity” and discuss potential ways to get your students to be more politically engaged citizens.
