The 15 Best Infographics of 2014

The 15 Best Infographics of 2014 | education | Scoop.it

Every year people proclaim the death of something or other in marketing -- and the death of the infographic doesn't escape conversation. It's probably because while more people have caught on to the power of infographics for communications or marketing initiatives, not all of them are doing it well -- so it's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.

 

These 15, however, managed to stand out. My criteria here were not scientific. I looked for infographics that I simply could not stop reading til the very end -- or in the case of the interactive ones in the latter half of this post, the ones I couldn't stop exploring. Enjoy perusing the best of what 2014's infographics had to offer, ranked in no particular order (except for #1 -- I love #1)....

Tell me about a time when you were in a job interview and you had to answer a behavioral question.

Sound familiar? Interviewers love asking applicants behavioral questions these days, and with good reason. Behavioral questions give them a keen insight into how the candidate would handle specific situations that happen in their work environments.

So here’s how to handle behavioral questions with ease:

Since we need to be encouraging (and teaching) both kinds of thinks, visuals like these will reinforce the metacognition of our students.

U.S. News global Top 500 universities

U.S. News global Top 500 universities | education | Scoop.it
U.S. News and World Report on Tuesday released a list that it calls the “Best Global Universities.” Using data from Thomson Reuters InCites, U.S. News sorted schools worldwide on various measures related to research. The factors analyzed include academic reputation surveys, scholarly publications, paper citations, international collaboration and doctoral degrees. The research-heavy methodology differs significantly from what is used to produce the annual U.S. News domestic college rankings. Factors such as undergraduate admissions selectivity and graduation rates, which play a key role in the domestic rankings, are absent from the global formula. Still, like the domestic version, the global list is bound to be controversial among academics who consider the formula and the data underlying it flawed. The global list is at www.usnews.com/education.
