Information is beautiful - 147 views

  •  
    From a review by Alice Yoo (here: http://mylifescoop.com/featured-stories/2011/05/top-6-sites-that-inspire-and-educate.html)
    "Information is Beautiful was started by London-based writer and designer David McCandless. It's a blog that takes information - facts, data, ideas - and turns it into well-designed charts, graphs and data visualizations. Relevant to not just designers but anyone who appreciates statistics and facts, this site will not only keep you entertained, it will educate you on the world we live in."

    Love infographics - love to be able to do them as well as these people!

      This site has a 30 second blurb on many topics that we teach from the money supply to Henri Matisse  from the space station to the properties of chemicals.

      great help - mainstream topics like "volcano" are pretty safe.  But the embed code doesn't work for Wikispaces.

    Qwiki instantly makes a 1 minute educational movie on any topic. A must try resource! Works by typing in a search term. Great for visual/auditory learners... and teachers. http://ictmagic.wikispaces.com/ICT+&+Web+Tools

HowStuffWorks - Learn How Everything Works! - 30 views

    Cool site that provides information on everything from "how dogs perceive time" to Quantum Mechanics.
  •  
    Take the site with a grain of salt.
    It's not very critical of what you might term "pseudo-science" e.g. homeopathy.
