About the project

 
  Background
The Tasmanian Electoral Commission [TEC] has developed this online Electoral Education Gateway as part of its role (under the Tasmanian Electoral Act 2004) to provide electoral awareness and education.  


   
  Goals
Develop Tasmanian specific resources for teachers that will:

- provide students with a broad grounding in the principles of democracy and the rights and responsibilities of being a citizen;
- facilitate opportunities for hands-on experiences of democracy;
- instill longer-term understanding and connection to the democratic process.

Facilitate teacher professional learning about electoral education.
