Clay Shirky: How the Internet will (one day) transform government | Video on TED.com - 12 views

  •  
    "The open-source world has learned to deal with a flood of new, oftentimes divergent, ideas using hosting services like GitHub -- so why can't governments? In this rousing talk Clay Shirky shows how democracies can take a lesson from the Internet, to be not just transparent but also to draw on the knowledge of all their citizens. Clay Shirky argues that the history of the modern world could be rendered as the history of ways of arguing, where changes in media change what sort of arguments are possible -- with deep social and political implications."

World Maps - 76 views

  •  
    If you think that the website Maps of World offers a huge collection of maps, you would be correct. If you guessed that the maps were of continents, nations, states, and cities then you would be right about that as well. What I discovered about Maps of World that I didn't expect was the amount of facts and information that accompanied their maps. Included with each map is the history, the demographics, the economic data and other useful facts of the continent/nation/state you looked up. They also feature road maps, printable maps, route planners, railroad maps, physical maps, and "Top Ten" themed maps. Maps of World is a great site for maps but it is so much more, it is a useful tool for learning about nations and their history. notes from Michael Sheehan

    This is the kind of learning students really dive in to, learn so much from, and never forget. How many NY State middle school and high school teachers will pass on it because they have too much to teach? The irony...
