Intute – probably the greatest link I’ve ever posted

August 25, 2011 Leave a comment

http://www.intute.ac.uk/

 

This is a ridiculously well organized collection of links for teachers… sorted by subject, and then more specific subject.  You ought to check it out and browse.

 

This site has “closed”, but they will remain open and viewable for another 3 years.  Apparently they lost funding.   Let’s take advantage of it while we can.  I have a suspicion that they will find funding to maintain the site beyond three years.  Time will tell.

U.S. Presidential Inaugural Addresses – WordClouded

June 5, 2011 Leave a comment

Amazing interactive graphic from the NY Times, with every US president selectable, a summary of the inaugural address he gave, and a super-revealing, self-explanatory word cloud (the size of the word represents how many times it was said, in proportion to the whole speech). One of the best interactive graphics I’ve seen – powerful for History, English, and math classes, I suspect.
