Context transforms information into knowledge! | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
Wow! THE TEAM at ContextU just unveiled a beta test site that is terrific.They have developed a way to present the CONTEXT of events, people, places and concepts that is truly wonderful to use. Although this first test is dedicated to the American Civil War, I can't wait to see the rest of human knowledge presented in this way. Whether you are a student, a teacher, a scholar or a curious individual, this really helps information to be transformed into knowledge! I urge you to visit http://www.contextu.com and to share it with your friends and family!

See events of the Civil War in context of what else was happening.
