Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 9, 2013 10:32 PM

Are you looking for ways to learn online this year? Check out this post which provides 13 possibilities for you to explore. A few of them are:

* Get inspired by great speeches - listen to speeches from turning points in history, movies and more!

* Directory of open access journals - do you need to research a topic? Check out journals that provide free access.

* Publish your own graphic novel - Use Comic Master to write a graphic novel (or perhaps, have students in your class use it).

* Explore maps - new and old. With GPS we may neglect maps, yet maps are an amazing tool. Learn about geograpgy, culture, history and more as you explore old maps (and new) at a variety of websites. 

Nine additional links await you when you click through to this post!

Google Earth Fractals

Google Earth Fractals | Cultura de massa no Século XXI (Mass Culture in the XXI Century) | Scoop.it

Who says you can't integrate geography and real world applications into the math curriculum?  Paul Bouke has scoured the Earth searching for fractals in the natural environment and created this amazingly artistic remote sensing gallery (with KMZ files for viewing in Google Earth as well).

Seth - I am hardly worthy of YOUR currating! Hope to meet you in person at NCGE and get a picture of us for Facebook. :-)

This is so beautiful. Fractals are an amazing phenomenon, whether you are an artist, geographer, or mathematician. I love being able to see fractals in plants or feel them as air travels through my lungs.

40 Beautiful Infographic Designs | Cultura de massa no Século XXI (Mass Culture in the XXI Century) | Scoop.it
An information graphic in its simplest form is a visual interpretation of data.

Though an incredibly useful form of data presentation, infographics have traditionally been an underwhelming sector of the design world.

That being said, there are some brilliant designers out there who have turned this form of data visualization into beautiful and creative works of art.

In appreciation of those designers who find beauty in data, here is a collection of 40 curated infographic designs that aim to inspire...

61 Amazing Manhole Covers from Japan

61 Amazing Manhole Covers from Japan | Cultura de massa no Século XXI (Mass Culture in the XXI Century) | Scoop.it

Manhole covers are a ubitquitous part of the urban fabric, and they are typically drab and purely utilitarian.  In Japan, municipalities take pride in the this ordinary piece of the landscape and convert them into extraordinary works of art that reflect the local people, place and culture.

This is a great take on art and the ways of celebrating Japan with touches of personal findings and ideas. These manhole covers are cheery and reflect a piece of Japan that not only tell stories, but embrace history.

Kaitlin Young's curator insight, December 12, 2014 3:17 PM

While many would consider it silly to turn something as ordinary as manhole covers into pieces of art, I believe that it is an amazing way to represent the culture of a place. Different townships and neighborhoods in Japan have distinct designs that relate to that place. This acts as an artistic expression of the characteristics of that place, since the designs are often chosen and designed by the people of that place. Some covers show historical events, animals, and even religious symbolism. I would love to flip through the book and try to imagine why each place chose each design.
