I'm playing around with the idea of using some interactive maps and data for part of a Social Studies unit, there are lots of great current event maps and data out there at places like mint.com and even the Huffington post does some data visualization stuff. I was just wondering if anybody else had ever done something like this and had found any good sites.
I also ran across this site when I was checking out the NewsShare section of this site: http://www.onlineschooling.net
-- doesn't seem to have anything interactive, but there are definitely a lot of great educational posters and visualized data over there. Thoughts? Suggestions?
