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. 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 are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
Amazon Watch and Survival International are two groups working to assist indigenous peoples and they both have multimedia resources (thanks to Willem for the tip). I’m adding both to The Best Sites For International Day Of The World’s Indigenous People.
Why Does Writing Make Us Smarter? is a useful summary of research. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Handwriting & Learning. Thanks to Kevin Washburn for the tip.
4 Solutions to Teen Sleep Problems has some useful research on sleep. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Helping Teens Learn About The Importance Of Sleep.
The Changing Face Of AIDS is an impressively done infographic from GOOD Magazine. I’m adding it to The Best Web Resources For Learning About HIV & AIDS.
An Interactive History of Climate Science is pretty neat — you need to check it out to see how neat it really is. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Climate Change.
Reframing Mexico is a very nice multimedia presentation. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Mexico’s Drug War.
Lindsey suggested this two-part film called “Babakiueria.” As she describes it, it ” is a satirical portrayal of white and Aboriginal interactions in Australia, through a role reversal in which whites are the minority.” I’m adding these two clips to The Best Sites For Walking In Someone Else’s Shoes.
