Vintage Data Visualization: 35 examples from before the Digital Era | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Graphics, charts, diagrams and visual data representations have been published on books, newspapers and magazines since they've existed, not to mention old maps and scientific illustrations...

 

Despite the lack of tools such as the ones we have at our disposal nowadays, they are as inspiring and important as the best contemporary visualizations. Visit the article link for a gallery of vintage visualizations...

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

"The shutdown of the United States government began today. With no plan of action from either political party, there is consequently no easy lesson for teachers to share with their students."

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.

7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom

7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

No matter what happens, there will always be a demand for data visualization tools. Data on its own can be pretty boring and brightening it up with images and other visual tools, it can make normally inaccessible information much easier to digest. (Editor’s Note: It’s also great for information reading literacy, and the new Common Core demand for multimedia “texts.”)

 

There are a number of fantastic tools out there that will present your data in an accessible manner. All of the tools listed below are free and chances are you’ve used one or two of the tools mentioned before.
