Students in my Information Policies and Politics course are preparing for their #infoshow16 presentation next week
We had a dress rehearsal during the last class, and as you can see from the photos, we were indeed dressed for the roles

Judge Moore

We are divided into three groups:
Five students act as judge, jury and court recorders  and they are also putting together the trial website.
We also have the Prosecution and Defense teams and of course Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden

The dress rehearsal ended in a hung jury and the judge declared a mistrial. During the #inforshow16 the audience acts as jury and will decide the outcome.

Is Edward Snowden guilty of
1.Theft of Government Property,
2.Unauthorized Communication of National Defense Information
3.Willful Communication of Classified Communications Intelligence Information to an Unauthorized Person

Have a sneak peek at the Prosecution questioning Snowden from here
