More than just crafts and recipes...great ideas for educators.
J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, April 20, 7:59 AM

It's true for me. I've found quite a few good lesson plan ideas via Pinterest. I wouldn't go so far as to say it is "transforming" but it is helpful. My one complaint is that too often good lesson plan ideas are linked to Teachers Pay Teachers dot com or similar pay site.

Seth Dixon's insight:

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. Interracial marriage, declining fertility rates, migration, economic opportunities and politics are just some of the issues that can be seen in these excellent populations pyramids, charts, videos and graphs.

This infographic that is masquerading as a map is so bad that it was incomprehensible.  I had to read the article to figure out what they were even trying to represent...and even then it was just a hot mess.  So yes, I won't be adding just fun/fantastic/education maps, I think I'll add an occasional train wreck from time to time.

State Maps in the Classroom | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"Have you ever seen a map and marveled over all of the information that it contains? It is incredible how maps can capture so much of the real world and depict so many places. From big cities to small towns, maps use characteristics such as topography, hydrography, industry, and recreation to tell the story of a place."

National Geographic Education has just finished producing all 50 State Tabletop Mapmaker kits which focus on basic mapping skills for younger audiences.  This set of tiled 8.5 x 11 sheets really expands what you can do and to help educators know what to do with these resources, they wrote this article that shows 9 ways to use these new state maps in your classroom.  I'm looking forward to printing off the Rhode Island state map!
