Explore old maps of US cities

Explore old maps of US cities | Notebook | Scoop.it

"This cool new historic mapping app from the folks at esri and the U.S. Geological Survey is worth exploring.  What it does is take 100 years of USGS maps and lets you overlay them for just about any location in the nation. That allows users to see how a city – say Harrisburg – developed between 1895 and today.  The library behind the project includes more than 178,000 maps dating from 1884 to 2006."

is a personal Notebook

For your information, I will be transfering scoops of the OKCC/C3O topic to my Notebook, in order to open a private space for the Biocluster of ICSU

Gilbert C FAURE's insight:

... designed to collect posts and informations I found and want to keep available but not relevant to the other topics I am curating on Scoop.it (on behalf of ASSIM):

 

the most sucessful being

Immunology, teaching and learning immunology

http://www.scoop.it/t/immunology

and

From flow cytometry to cytomics

http://www.scoop.it/t/from-flow-cytometry-to-cytomics

Immunology and Biotherapies, a page of resources for the DIU 

 http://www.scoop.it/t/immunology-and-biotherapies

 

followed by

Nancy, Lorraine

 http://www.scoop.it/t/nancy-lorraine

I am based at Université Lorraine in Nancy

 

Wuhan, Hubei,

 http://www.scoop.it/t/wuhan

because we have a long standing collaboration through a french speaking medical training program between Faculté de Médecine de Nancy and WuDA, Wuhan university medical school and Zhongnan Hospital

  

CME-CPD,

 http://www.scoop.it/t/cme-cpd

because I am at EACCME in Brussels, representative of the medical biopathology and laboratory medicine UEMS section

 

Mucosal Immunity,

 http://www.scoop.it/t/mucosal-immunity

because it was one of our main research interest some years ago

Evaluating Websites as Information Sources

Evaluating Websites as Information Sources | Notebook | Scoop.it
Studies suggest that many U.S. students are too trusting of information found on the internet and rarely evaluate the credibility of a website’s information. For example, a survey found that only 4 percent of middle school students reported checking the accuracy of information found on the web at school, and even fewer did so at home (New Literacies Research Team & Internet Reading Research Group, 2006). At the same time, the web is often used as a source of information in school projects, even in early schooling, and sites with inaccurate information can come up high in search rankings.

6 suggestions for teaching information literacy

6 suggestions for teaching information literacy | Notebook | Scoop.it
Most college students have been exposed to more technology than students of previous generations. This does not make them technology experts.  Students do a lot of searching online for information. This does not make them expert, or even good, searchers. Thanks to Google, students can always find information on any topic.  This does not mean that they have found true, accurate, useful information and does not make them expert finders of information.
