Matt Ramsdell's curator insight, December 14, 2015 2:25 PM

After analyzing this map and looking at the busiest cities and countries in the world I believe this statement to be true. China a giant and very populated country, India is also within the top ten and so is Japan. Once all these have been looked at you can clearly tell that this area of the world is easily the most populated. Many of the other countries and nations have large swaths of land that are very lightly populated. This is a robust area of the world and in some cases the most expansive.

Adam Deneault's curator insight, December 14, 2015 6:33 PM
It surprises me how many people live in just that one circle! it is hard to believe or probably explain to someone that with all the other space in the world, that the circles region has more people in it than what is not circled. Although, it could be validated by more reliable or more sources, because with the world that we live in now, numbers can easily be forged. I do believe though that 51% of the world's population does live here.
Alex Vielman's curator insight, December 14, 2015 11:58 PM

This is perhaps the most intriguing map I've been able to analyze. Could it be possible that more people live in that circle than out of it? The world is HUGE and to think the majority of the population resides here, is truly incredible. India, has a huge population living in there for such a small area. Currently, India has over 1 billion people living there making it the second most populous country before China with 1.3 billion. China has a bigger surface area than India and it is interesting to know how these areas compare. The important issue with India is the fact that, with so many people, there is a lack of housing and sanitation unavailable to provide to so many people. The facts are giving that India suffers from overpopulation, clearly, this image has to be true.

With a barrage of comunication outlets and a time slate that is often fragmented like a broken mirror, the de-evolution of longform thought and speech is a new bedfellow---but don't worry; he doesn't take up much room.

Are you looking for new tools that students may use to create slideshows that may also include audio? Richard Byrne has come up with five recommendations. The names are below and more information is available in his post.

* Narrable - currently this site does not have educator accounts, but the FAQ states "excited that teachers are using Narrable in the classroom and we're working closely with educators to develop features and accounts specifically for your needs."

* UTellStory - this site does offer a free account. If you want an educator account (which allows for 50 student accounts) there is a fee.

* Present.me - they also offer a free account, or education account (not free)

* Hello Slide- free accounts are available as well as paid

* Animoto - there is an account for educators that is free as well as paid accounts
