100 Diagrams That Changed the World

100 Diagrams That Changed the World | Reading in the 21st century | Scoop.it

A visual history of human sensemaking, from cave paintings to the world wide web.


Since the dawn of recorded history, we’ve been using visual depictions to map the earth, order the heavens, make sense of time, dissect the human body, organize the natural world, perform music, and even decorate abstract concepts like consciousness and love.

100 Diagrams That Changed the World by investigative journalist and documentarian Scott Christianson chronicles the history of our evolving understanding of the world through humanity’s most groundbreaking sketches, illustrations, and drawings, ranging from cave paintings to The Rosetta Stone to Moses Harris’s color wheel to Tim Berners-Lee’s flowchart for a “mesh” information management system, the original blueprint for the world wide web.

But most noteworthy of all is the way in which these diagrams bespeak an essential part of culture — the awareness that everything builds on what came before, that creativity is combinational, and that the most radical innovations harness the cross-pollination of disciplines.

Notes the relative ease of learning to read in Finnish as a first language compared to learning to read in English.  Elementary teachers in English-speaking countries should be congratulated for teaching children to read in an orthographically deep language.

Engaging teens with reading | Services to Schools

"There is ongoing discussion in education about teens not reading as they used to do. However, this is confused by different perceptions about what ‘reading’ means. Because of the digital environment, literacy for teens today may involve multimodal delivery platforms. In other words, they’re still reading (and writing) - just not always in the traditional ‘book’ way.

This section looks at the area of teen reading, the benefits, motivations and types of reading that they engage with."
