Here is an example of a very simple video site. It's the periodic table, and if you click on each element, it shows a video of that particular element. I think it could be a great tool for chemistry teachers. Can we make something simple and interacti...

"Forget the Year of Mobile-- It's Actually the year of Video"That is the title of the article I came across the other night.

To view a well done website that features well done short video pieces, please check out this site about The Art of Making I really like the simple layout of the website, but I especially like how beautifully shot the videos are! This video in particular has great detail shots, amazing use of aftereffects, and an overall simple short story of a dress. The way the credits were done were quite creative as well.

Germany, Cuba, Argentina, Peru, Bahrain, --- to name a few-- are the countries where photographer, Julian Germain, captured portraits of students in their classrooms. From 2004-2012, Germain worked on this photo project, which culminated into a book containing 450 portraits from 20 different countries. From what they are wearing to the classroom decor-it is definitely interesting to see the similarities and differences of how classrooms look throughout the world. I find most interesting their facial expressions. Apparently,...

Because of my background in journalism, I was quite interested in the 2pm panel discussion at Wednesday's Research Data Symposium. (Thanks Sharon for posting that event!) I wanted to see the different ways journalism is using data, and what kinds of data they are analyzing, and how are they visually displaying this data. I am no expert on data analysis, but rather interested in data visualization. I always admired how newspapers and journalism outlets were able to create interesting graphs and timelines. For example, a few weeks ago, I saw a very powerful data visualization of
