  1. Yes, a good presentation of content though IMHO quite misleading.

    More explanation on his very popular TED talk.

    I have some slides of this on EFL Classroom but for the life of me don’t know where they are!

  2. I would like to see this tool used to track educational trends over the last 200 years. Look at states and countries, by income, by educational initiative, class size, teacher training, union participation, etc. The problem is what metric will be used? Age and income are easy to determine numbers with little disagreement over what they mean. But, how do you measure educational achievement? That would also be an interesting moving graph.
