EdListen 3 Simple Steps to Do-it-yourself Professional Development Professional Development | Viewpoint 3 Simple Steps to Do-it-yourself Professional Development By Meg Ormiston06/21/12 Today, every teacher needs to be in charge of his or her own professional development, if for no other reason than district budgets require everyone to be so much more creative. Formal professional development would be workshops, conferences, and college classes.

For example, there’s the well-known “If Twitter Was 100 People” infographic. There are also several sites that use “gimmick” to illustrate much more important data about the world around us.

Here are my choices for The Best Sites That Show Statistics By Reducing The World & The U.S. Miniature Earth is a pretty amazing site. USA has an article about a book and school curriculum that portrays the United States as one hundred people. 100 People: A World Chart is also accessible. The World of 100 is a series of infographics highlighting various statistics. Here’s a site that uses Lego-like imagery to reduce the world to 100 people in different categories — weird, but, I think, effective. “If The World Were A Village Of 100 People” is a good infographic.
