Great Infographic: “You’re Hired: The Skills Employers Seek in New Hires”

By the way, here’s their response when I asked for permission to republish it here:

We’re happy to have you publish the infographic with attribution to the REL Mid-Atlantic. The document is in the public domain.

It would be great if researchers made finding accessible through infographics!

Check Out The NY Times Learning Feature “What’s Going On In This Graph?”

 

The New York Times Learning Network has a great interactive feature called “What’s Going On In This Graph?”

Here’s their announcement about the next upcoming one:

On Tuesday, Jan. 9, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern Time, teachers from the American Statistical Association will provide live, online moderation of the student discussion on the graph. As an experiment, we published this post a few days early to give teachers time to preview the graph.

You can see that graph and more information here.

Even better, you can see all their past and future “What’s Going On In This Graph?” posts here.

I’m adding this info to A Collection Of “The Best…” Lists On Infographics

Fascinating – & Depressing – “You Draw It” Interactive Infographic From NY Times

The New York Times periodically published “You Draw It” infographics – it gives you the chance you draw what you think is the answer and then compares it to the actual data. I’ve previously shared two of them:

You Draw It: How Family Income Predicts Children’s College Chances

You Draw It: What Got Better or Worse During Obama’s Presidency

Today, they’ve published a new one, You Draw It: Just How Bad Is the Drug Overdose Epidemic?, which lets you compare the number of Americans who have died of drug overdoses to the numbers who die from other causes.

It’s engaging – and depressing.

Infographic: “15 Fairytales From Around the World”

I’m adding this infographic to A Beginning List Of The Best Folklore & Myth Sites:

15 Fairytales From Around the World - PlaygroundEquipment.com - Infographic
PlaygroundEquipment.com

ADDENDUMN: Here is a comment left by a reader: “An interesting info graphic, but please note the term “Eskimo” is no longer an acceptable name for the people of the north. In Canada the term is Inuit / Inuk. Eskimo is seen as derogatory.
I didn’t read the rest of the descriptors thoroughly, but would hesitate to use this if in the main body there was a major flaw.”
