paragraph a



Gapminder.org
Gapminder.org is an interactive website that highlights the disparities in various life conditions across the world. Using numerous data sets, Gapminder takes “boring numbers” and transforms them into interactive graphs, charts, and maps. In the analysis tool, teachers and students can select from various world static categories and years and watch how statistics have changed and continue to change. With so many statistical categories ranging from economic to environmental, the educational opportunities and possibilities are near endless. The most remarkable and useful feature for the classroom is the ability to watch statistics change over time. From this tool, students will be exposed to the drastic changes in life expectancies and in particular the slow growth of developing nations. The study of immigration trends, regional comparisons during times of conflict, and individual country exploration projects are just a few of many areas of the curriculum Gapminder could be applied to improve student interest and understanding. Furthermore, Gapminder even has a ‘For Teachers’ tab with videos and guidance of how to implement the statistical analysis tools effectively in the classroom.
