The prestigious Parents’ Choice Awards recognized d’Vinci Interactive and PBS LearningMedia with a top award for the online educational experience, the Electoral Decoder.
The Electoral Decoder educates middle and high school students about how the Electoral College impacts presidential elections. The learning experience features a video about the election process, an interactive timeline with results from past Presidential elections and a cartogram representing the electoral power of each state. The Presidential Predictor tool enables students to select who they think would win each state and predict who would win the election. New information and resources are available to make the learning experience relevant to the current political climate. d’Vinci created both the Electoral Decoder and the Presidential Interactive Map as part of the PBS LearningMedia Election Central microsite.
