How the Internet has Changed in the Last 10 Years [Infographic]

How the Internet has Changed in the Last 10 Years [Infographic] | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it
This infographic visualizes the spectacular rise of the Internet in the last 10 years and how some companies have failed to adapt to the changes.

Here’s an interesting infographic that has been making the rounds across social media for the last two weeks. It visualizes the spectacular rise of the Internet in just 10 years. In 2002, the Internet boasted 569 million users, which translated to 9.1% of the world’s population. In 2012, that number has gone through the roof: There are now 2.27 billion users, or 33% of the world’s population.

Another formidable stat is the amount of time people spend online — in 2002, it was only 46 minutes a day (about the time it took to download four songs); in 2012, it’s four hours a day.

Khan Academy Receives $5 Million to Accelerate the Reinvention of Education

Khan Academy Receives $5 Million to Accelerate the Reinvention of Education | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it

Whilst there may be some justifiable concerns about the place of Khan Academy in the learning ecosysem, it has a vital role to play. It is accessed by hundreds of thousands, if not milllions.. Additional funding means it can expand its reach to include arts and humanities in addition to its core STEM resources. Smarthistory is a good example of how this can work: http://smarthistory.khanacademy.org/ 

 

 

"Much as Wikipedia draws its content from a large number of volunteer professionals, the curated content system for Khan Academy will look to provide a similar outlet for dedicated professionals to develop quality instructional content."
