Presentation Description

This rise in information availability combined with the political atmosphere surrounding today’s college students has placed America on the way toward reversing the downward trends in political participation. The Internet is a crucial tool for politicians who want to secure the millennial vote. The web provides a comprehensive tool for engaged citizenship though numerous, free resources that empower voters to make educated decisions about their leadership in a representative democracy. Information Literacy and Political Efficacy: Using the Web for Engaged Citizenship hopes to identify an increase in political efficacy through increased information literacy.
