Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 5, 2013 2:32 PM

I am delighted to announce that I will be one of the new authors that will be writing for Maps 101's newest educational platform: the Geography News Network.  Many schools and districts across the country have subscriptions to this online service that provides thousands of supplemental materials and lesson plans for geography, earth science, history and social studies teachers.  If your school district does not currently have a subscription, you can sign up for a free trial subscription.

Sandy Montoya's comment, September 8, 2013 12:38 PM
I believe it is very important for viewers to watch such channels. You get a chance to learn about other cultures around the world and relate them to themselves and the world around them. It is a great educational site.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 25, 11:02 PM

A new search engine is now available. It is called Leap.it and as the image above shows, it is a more visual search engine than many. You can use the search engine as is, or you can create an account which allows you some additional privledges, including the ability to create a "perspective" where you can bring together a variety of sites in one location.

When reviewing the Terms and Conditions it is clear that students under 13 may not use the app without permission from parents. For more information on this issue take the time to read the Terms and Conditions.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 14, 1:20 PM

This incredible series of interactive charts from the New York Times show where the residents of every U.S. state were born and how that data has changed over time (update: now available as an interactive map).  This graph of Florida shows that around 1900, most people living in Florida were from the South.  Around the middle of the 20th century more people from other parts of the U.S. and from outside the U.S. started moving in.  What changes in U.S. society led to these demographic shifts?  How has demographics of your state changes over the last 114 years? 

   

On the flip side, many people have been leaving California and this article charts the demographic impact of Californians on other states.

Running 5 Minutes a Day Has Long-Lasting Benefits | ESL, EFL interesting stuff. ESL Pêle Mêle. | Scoop.it

tinueEven small amounts of vigorous exercise could significantly lower a person’s risk of dying prematurely, according to a large-scale new study of exercise and mortality.

Amélie Silvert's insight:

comment un titre peut être trompeur...Apprendre aux élèves à lire au delà des premières lignes. Il s'agit en fait d'une étude sur des milliers de personnes. Après plusieurs années, les bénéfices de la course s'appliquent à tous les types de coureurs, qu'ils courent une heure ou 5 minutes par jour. D'où le raccourci que courir 5 minutes suffit. On lit même à la fin qu'il faut continuer en sautant à la corde ou en faisant autre chose. On ne lit et ne retient que ce que l'on veut en fait. :)

In the summer of 1964, hundreds of out-of-state volunteers joined local activists in Mississippi to increase voter registration among disenfranchised African Americans in the state.
