40 Maps That Explain The Internet

40 Maps That Explain The Internet | Infographics | Scoop.it

The internet increasingly pervades our lives, delivering information to us no matter where we are. It takes a complex system of cables, servers, towers, and other infrastructure, developed over decades, to allow us to stay in touch with our friends and family so effortlessly. Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet — where it came from, how it works, and how it's used by people around the world.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, August 22, 1:00 PM
Here's why the Internet works, "... because open standards allow every network to connect to every other network.  (So far...)   This is what makes it possible for anyone to create content, offer services, and sell products without requiring permission from a central authority.

It levels the playing field for everyone and it’s the reason why we have a rich diversity of applications and services that many of us enjoy today.

      Spector Pro is a type of Internet surveillance program.
      This Web page, sponsored by the manufacturer of the product,
explains the functionality of the software and describes its
features. It can be installed on a variety of computers and
can be installed in “Stealth” mode so that the user cannot
detect the software on his or her computer. The program can
also monitor all computer use ranging from Word documents
to Web sites. This source supports my other sources by
illustrating the ease with which this kind of software can be
installed as well as the extensive amount of information it
can gather for employers.

Interest-based content curation was only a vision 2 years ago when we launched: in a post Web 2.0 world, we felt that more and more we are the content we publish. Whether we liked it or not, we would all need to become media - a problem for busy professionals who don’t have time or inspiration for that and whose primary expertise is often not to be a content publisher.

Surprise, Surprise: Higher Education Spending Doesn't Correlate With Better Academic Performance, But Low Teen Pregnancy Does

Surprise, Surprise: Higher Education Spending Doesn't Correlate With Better Academic Performance, But Low Teen Pregnancy Does | Infographics | Scoop.it
Education spending shows a significantly looser correlation with academic performance than does rates of teenage pregancy. New York state spends the most on education at $19,076 per student, yet ranks 40th in rates of high school graduation. Oklahoma spends $7,587 per student, yet ranks 27th. Even taking into account cost-of-living differences, the per-capita spend is far higher in New York than in Oklahoma.

Alas, while the state education spending in Sarah Palin’s home state of Alaska is the third highest in the land, Alaska ranked 49th in the rate of high school graduation and a dismal 34th in 8th grade reading.

Unfortunately, a high student-to-teacher ratio is not a magic bullet either. The District of Columbia, for instance, ranks second in education spending -- with the third best student/teacher ratio -- yet the District still ranked dead last in 8th grade math and reading, and 40th in the rate of high school graduation.

How to Teach Close Reading Infographic | e-Learning Infographics | Infographics | Scoop.it
As a teacher, the Common Core State Standards can be a lot to get your mind around. When you take a closer look at the Standards for the English Language Arts, however, it’s clear that the main goal is to get kids to engage with what they’re reading on a deeper level: to ask questions about what they notice, and to answer those questions based on what’s in the text. Another term for this strategy is close reading. The How to Teach Close Reading Infographic explains the strategy in more detail.
