Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 28, 2014 10:29 AM

Access to education is one of the great indicators of development and political stability--educators wish nothing but the best education possible for the next generation, but the experience is quite variable across the globe.  As many places have recently started school again, this article is a reminder that this practice is experienced differently around the world.

Edelin Espino's curator insight, December 13, 2014 3:17 PM

Google is always a step ahead of any other online page so it is not surprising that Google have some countries in dispute because they can see people can see the political status of a country in Google map but that might change the way we see and think about Google and countries with dispute. Google or the Internet will always be a good help for people to be able see what is happening between country's borders.

Beth Kanter Interviews Robin Good - Insights & Tips On Curation For Non- Profits [Video]

Beth Kanter interviewed Robin Good a few days ago, for the entire interview with Beth and Robin please click here: [http://bit.ly/y3bmPo]

 

Robin, I really enjoyed listening to you, I know this is aimed at non-profits but your insights, tips and suggestions are something we can all use. 

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

**BEFORE you get on the web, decide how much time you're going to spend on there, otherwise it could become addictive, and this can happen if you're not careful (hmmm how many of you can relate to this?) 

 

**Know who your audience is, pick a very specific topic,

 

**be as narrow as you can, find great pieces, pull out what you think would be relevant for them (being too broad doesn't help filter out the noise for these people, it adds to it)

 

I'm going to let you get right to the interview and let Robin tell you more:-)

 

Selected by Jan Gordon covering "Content Curation, Social Busiess and Beyond"

 

Here's the interview:  [http://bit.ly/y3bmPo]

Exploring Interactive Visualization

Exploring Interactive Visualization | Communications for Good | Scoop.it
We often spend time talking to organizations that initially believe developing one or more static infographics is the best approach. Many times, we discover that their objectives, narrative, existing content, and the profile of their target audience suggest we should be considering developing an interactive work product instead.
As infographics become a more prevalent form of communication, we look ahead to other meaningful ways to impart information. This article serves as an introduction to interactive visualizations, with more detailed articles on the topic still to come.

Big Data: A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Big Data: A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words | Communications for Good | Scoop.it

Big data: So if a “picture is worth a thousand words,” then why not make data discovery visual for business users so they can easily analyze and assimilate information?

 

A lot of ink has been spilled relating to big data; countless articles, blog posts and discussions are about how data is growing by leaps and bounds and how companies need the ability to store and manage peta bytes and zeta bytes of data. Unless a decision maker can access and analyze this data effectively, it isn’t worth much. If you are serious about managing big data, it’s time to truly visualize it to become a better decision-maker.

Sixty-five percent of business decision makers face a shrinking “decision window.” So if a “picture is worth a thousand words,” then why not make data discovery visual for business users so they can easily analyze and assimilate information? Visualization provides rapid access to data in a format that’s easy for business users to digest and use.

According to research, managers that make use of visual discovery tools are 10 percent more likely than their peers to access the information they need in the time necessary to impact decision making. This also impacts IT, as it frees up critical resources to support users more effectively...

PHILANTHROPY 2173: Buzzword 2011.3 - Storytelling | Communications for Good | Scoop.it

Even as technology becomes ubiquitous, embedded, and smart we still need stories. In fact, we need them more than ever.

The more data we get, the better we get at data visualization, the more we are swamped with numbers and graphs and information in general, the more we need stories. They are the oldest technology we have for making sense of things.

A new report new shows the changing demographics in American education and how it differs from that of the general population.  The demographic shifts in the United States are transforming the cultural fabric of the country and this interactive feature from the Pew Research Center explores some of these changes.  What are some of the reasons and what are some of the impacts?


Tag: declining populations, population, demographic transition model, USA.

Linda Rutledge Hudson's curator insight, September 15, 2014 6:02 PM

Have observed the transition in our suburban school district.  I love the diversity -- yet, teaching students from all over the globe, sometimes with limited English, can be challenging.  And, our working population will eventually see the change as well -- at all levels.
