Beth Dichter's insight:

Jackie Gerstein shares her top picks for education infographics this year. Some of these have been shared in this Scoop.it but many are new. The list of infographics includes:

* The Internet Access Gap in Education

* The Past, Present and Future of Education

* State of Creativity in Education: An Adobe Survey

* The Gamification of Education

* Tapping into Mobile Learning

* Investing in Girls' Education Pays Off

Many of these would be useful as topics for discussion or to use to teach students why infographics are useful in displaying data.

The History Of Learning Tools [Infographic] | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

You’re going to want to print out this infographic and, at the very least, share it with your fellow teachers and even students. It’s all about the history of education technology and could be used to educate just about anyone on how far we’ve come in a short period of time. We did a more in-depth look at the history of education technology about a year ago but this infographic is a lot more… fun.

 

Anyway, the below infographic from CTU can be viewed below or downloaded as a PDF here (so you can fire up that color printer). Enjoy the walk down memory lane!

Visual Resources To Teach About The U.S. Government Shutdown

Visual Resources To Teach About The U.S. Government Shutdown | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 1, 2013 10:08 PM

Are your students asking questions about the shutdown of the US government? Are you looking for some excellent resources to help them understand what is going on? ASIDE has put together a number of resources to help you out. Check out this article where you will find

* A short video from the BBC titled U.S. Government Shutdown in 60 Seconds

* An interactive tool "US Government Shutdown" visualization (you may use your mouse and roll over different departments to learn the impact of the shutdown

* An infographic "Who Goes to Work? Who Stays Home" from the NY Times

* An infographic that asks "How Would a Government Shutdown Affect Your Life?"

* A slide show from USA Today that catalogs the "Government Shutdown by the Numbers" and quite a few more.

Many students are interested in this and this article notes that their questions were mostly on "blame and healthcare." You may find different questions in your classroom with this robust list of resources.

Nat Sones's curator insight, October 2, 2013 8:13 AM

Shutdown is the ultimate failure of government. This seems not to have passed unnoticed exactly, but being missed as it gets covered in all sorts of other statements, facts, data and reactions. By shutting down, by neglecting their duty (not to mention wasting vast, unbelievable amounts of resource doing so), the US government has betrayed its people, and allowed political brinkmanship and the primitive desire to 'win the argument' to undermine the whole point of it. 

 

If, that is, you believe that the point of government is to protect people, nurture civilisation and direct growth. If you believe that the point of government and the purpose behind politics is to further the careers and feed the egos of politicians, however, it's fine!

 

This material shows in crystal clarity how the shutdown is affecting US society and people. A good clear way of seeing the shocking neglect of duty that this represents - by all sides. Reaching consensus is the duty of politicians; not fighting to the death. Because the politicians never have to actually pay any price - others do that for them.
