This is from an infographic that will appear next week in Infographic-A-Day (IGaD). I found it from TICs y Formación, one of the infographics blogs that I monitor through my iPad. It’s a Periodic Table of World Internet Facts. It’s a frequently used theme, a periodic table, for expressing information. I like to use the Period Table of Elements as an example of how “There’s nothing new about infographics!”
To the far right of the table are a set of lists, the top ten of countries around the world concerning their use of the Internet. Here are four of the lists:
|Top 10 (Number of Users)
||Top 10 (% of Population)
|Top 10 (Bandwidth Speed)
||Top 10 (Fastest Growing)
As an educator, I believe that there is much to be excited about in the world of teaching and learning. At the same time — and in the autumn of my career — I am haunted by a nation (my nation) that seems less than inclined to invest in itself — except for an elite part of itself.
