C-SPAN Digital Bus at PSU This Morning

You are invited to visit the C-SPAN Digital Bus this morning, 9:30-11:30 a.m., as part of a nationwide tour during the build-up to the 2012 Presidential election. The bus, which will be parked adjacent to the Hartman Union Building, is a great learning tool that showcases the electoral process from a multimedia standpoint and emphasizes the importance of voting. C-SPAN also engages local authors and four Plymouth State faculty members, Thad Guldbrandsen, David Starbuck, Kate Donahue and Eun-Ho Yeo will be interviewed about books they have written. The bus also offers four Touchsmart computer kiosks to access C-SPAN's resources, which include a video library, C-SPAN Classroom, Book TV, and many websites. Visitors can also test their knowledge on a public affairs quizzes, share their opinion on the latest C-SPAN Poll, or record a perspective in the "Speaker's Corner".
