April 3, 2008 presentation: TED talk of Hans Rosling
VISUALIZING INFORMATION: TRENDALYZER
TED Talk: http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/92
We will vary things a little for this brownbag. Instead of a colleague’s presentation we will watch Hans Rosling’s demonstration of the statistical animation software, Tredalyzer (now acquired by Google). In this talk Rosling uses U.N. data in dynamic visual representations to challenge assumptions about the so-called ‘developing world.’ This has interesting implications for teaching and learning and we will discuss the talk immediately following the viewing. Please bring your lunch and join us. As usual, coffee and dessert will be provided.
