Dean Meyers's curator insight, November 12, 2013 10:45 AM

It seems that mapping, as a storytelling tool, is becoming extremely popular, with new sets and tools opening every day (see my post yesterday on www.vizworld.com about CartoDB.com updating their mapping tools with new capabilities and free subscriptions).

Have your paper reviewed BEFORE you turn it in.
Melissa Marshall's insight:

A great web tool with no log on required - students simply paste the text of their work in and it generates a report with suggested improvements. It also highlights spelling/grammar issues and gives an expected grade!

Great to check a student's work that you may be suspicious of as well.

Tsunami in Japan 2011

"This video captures some amazing footage of the 2011 tsunami in Japan."

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, May 3, 2014 7:17 PM

Most people do not realize the sheer power of a tsunami. It has the force of the entire ocean depth behind each wave. It also pours onto land for hours until it stops then pours back into the ocean for another hour or so. Most people killed are killed by objects such as cars and buildings crushing them. Seeing videos such as these can help people get a better idea of the forces actually involved and maybe save lives.

Jess Deady's curator insight, May 4, 2014 9:33 PM

I hope something like this never happens again. Tsunamis are unreal. They are literally horrifying and to see something like this captured on camera is actually really scary. Damn plate tectonics and people living on the water front.

Lora Tortolani's curator insight, April 20, 2015 1:52 PM

So, I will never forget this morning because my brother was living in Japan at the time and I remember getting a text from him saying "we are ok."  My brother is a bit of a jokester so I figured he had something up his sleeve, however, when I woke up and heard of the destruction, I was so relieved to know he and his family were safe.  For the next month my brother flew rescue missions and brought water and food to the survivors.  He had taken hundred of pictures, and I was able to witness first hand how devastating the tsunami had been.  My heart still goes out to those people, and I am forever grateful that my brother is alive and well.
