(NOTE: I usually publish this kind of post once-a-week. However, even more links than usual accumulated during this last week of school”)
I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in this blog but, just because of time constraints, have not gotten around to doing so. Instead of letting that backlog grow bigger, I regularly grab a few and list them here with a minimal description. It forces me to look through these older links, and help me organize them for my own use. I hope others will find them helpful, too. These are resources that I didn’t include in my “Best Tweets” feature because I had planned to post about them, or because I didn’t even get around to sending a tweet sharing them.
Here is Another Special Edition Of “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
The World Food Programme has developed an impressive interactive map showing the famine areas in the Horn of Africa. I’m adding it to The Best Web Resources About Somalia’s Drought & Famine. Cholera Breaks Out Amid Famine is a Wall Street Journal slideshow I’m adding to the same list.
Educational Technology Through The Years is a slideshow from David Deubelbeiss. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The History Of Technology. This doesn’t quite fit into that “The Best” list, but it’s so amazing that it had go to somewhere: Timeline of Systematic Data and the Development of Computable Knowledge.
San Diego Zoo Panda celebrates Birthday by Attacking Cake! is video I just had to add to The Best Sites To Learn About Pandas.
