This is really interesting. You can zoom through time and look at how the Earth has changed in terms of ice sheets, sea levels, temperature and more. There's also an iPad app.

Digital vs. Paper

Tony Hall's insight:

You've more than likely seen this already, but I think it is worth sharing. I love technology. I love using it in the classroom. But it is just a tool - a crap teacher with a laptop is still a crap teacher. I firmly believe that there is room for the traditional as well as the innovative. Enjoy:)

Seth Dixon's curator insight, March 31, 2013 8:59 PM

So many of the educational discussions these days are touting the newest technologies (many of which I embrace).  Too many though, I fear, are willing to abandon tried and true "old school" pedagogical strategies in an attempt to incorporate the latest and greatest.  Just because it's new doesn't inherently make it better.  This video is a comical reminder that some old technologies and old strategies are worth keeping.  Let's keep some paper in the educational system.
