College Daze: A Snapshot of the Class of 2013 [INFOGRAPHIC] | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

SpareFoot.com, the largest online marketplace for self-storage, presents some figures that shed some light on what the future holds for the Class of 2013.

 

Taken from a number of different sources, this infographic should give recent graduates a good preview of what they can expect out there in the real world.

 

Key takeaways:
1.8 million students will earn Bachelor's degrees in 2013
13% graduates from 2013 will be hired than employers hired from class 2012

The Power of the Visual for learning

The Power of the Visual for learning | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"Visuals are so powerful. Carl Hendrick wrote recently about motivational posters recently here and I tend to agree when they’re used out of context, however I think visualisations can be a great learning tool, particularly when students make them themselves."

Cursive writing? Should we teach it or not? Many states are still requiring cursive writing be taught, but it is not part of the Common Core. This infographic provides information about why it is important that students learn cursive.

Bart van Maanen's curator insight, February 21, 10:17 AM

Uit onderzoek is gebleken dat leerlingen lesstof beter opnemen als ze handgeschreven notities maken. Gewoon leren schrijven en het ontwikkelen van je handschrift blijft dus van groot belang.

Comprehensive List of Free e-Book Websites for your e-Reader

Comprehensive List of Free e-Book Websites for your e-Reader | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

If you own an e-reader you often can only buy e-books from the bookstore that is bundled on your device. Many of the budget e-readers out there don’t even have a bookstore that is accessible by users and many people are left to fend for themselves to load content on it.

Here is a comprehensive free e-book resource catalog online. All of these books are hardware agnostic, which means they are not locked by DRM (Digital Rights Management). All you have to do is simply download a title and load in via the USB cable from your computer to your e-reader. Many of these sites also provide the books in more than one format, so they will work with your Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Barnes and Noble Nook, Sony e-reader and hundreds of others.

15 Countries In 4 Minutes (Time Lapse)

"During the past two years, Kien Lam went on the kind of trip most could only dream about. The photographer wanted to "see as much of the world as possible," so he visited 15 countries around the globe, from Mexico to New Zealand, snapping more than 10,000 photographs along the way. He edited his work together to make this stupendous time-lapse, which may be one of the most envy-inducing travel diaries I've ever seen."

Global Shipping Traffic Visualized

As stated in this NPR article: "The video shows satellite tracking of routes superimposed over Google Earth. It focuses on some of the main choke points for international shipping, such as the Strait of Malacca on the southern tip of Malaysia, Suez Canal, the Strait of Gibraltar and Panama Canal. It's a good reminder that about 90 percent of all the goods traded globally spend at least some of their transit time on a ship."
