40 Maps That Explain The Internet

40 Maps That Explain The Internet | People Data, Infographics & Sweet Stats | 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 insight:
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.

Curious how the Internet started?  These maps of servers show the progression.

"A close look at brick-and-mortar classrooms highlights differences between blended learning and other trends."

In blended classrooms, also know as flipped classrooms, professors use classroom time to interact with students and use the Internet to deliver lectures, typically as web videos. 

  • "[there is some] ...element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace and at least in part at a ...location away from home."

To illustrate the previous full video on teaching, learning and doing research via social media in a university setting, here is an Infographic on Christina Costa.


The website also links to her PhD thesis:  

The participatory web in the context of academic research : landscapes of change and conflicts



I just developed an infographic on my experience using easel.ly


It doesn’t look as great as I’d like – need to improve my design skills!! – but this was pretty easy to create.


A great way to illustrate one’s experience.

I'd be remiss if I didn't also Scoop this to my Social Media curation stream at the SMLL - social media at the university, with the video lecturers bio illustrated via this infographic tool.  ~  Deb
