The 2012 election has spawned interesting voter tools and learning games that show how news publishers are adapting to the internet. Here is a list worth reviewing. These applications are more than publicity for the media. They are good public relations as well. The news media have forged new paths in the production and dissemination of information. They have developed practical tools that anyone can use to become better informed citizens and voters. Look for more of this in years to come. From a practitioner's perspective, one should ask how applications like this might be used in the corporate and nonprofit world. It shouldn't take too much of a stretch to adapt them.
