Share Your Silence John Cage’s 4'33" is a composition four minutes and thirty-three seconds in length, during which the performer—or performers—does not play a note. Often described as Cage’s "silent" piece, 4'33" was in fact meant to shift attention away from the performer, to the audience itself, and to the richness and variety of ambient sound. Reflecting years later on the 1952 debut performance, Cage wrote: "What they thought was silence, because they didn’t know how to listen, was full of accidental sounds." Use your mobile device to record the "silence" around you. Visit this web site to submit your recordings to MoMA's SoundCloud dropbox. This sound map was made in conjunction with the exhibition There Will Never Be Silence: Scoring John Cage's 4'33", on view from October 12, 2013–June 22, 2014 at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Digitala kartor och källkritik Digitala kartor förändrar undervisningen Den digitala tekniken har fullständigt revolutionerat användningen av kartor, inte minst inom skolans undervisning. Tidigare var vi lärare hänvisade till de väggkartor som råkade finnas i klassrummet, de kartböcker skolan hade köpt in, de kartbilder som fanns i läroböckerna samt de köpta eller egenhändigt tillverkade overhead-bilder vi hade tillgång till. Antalet möjliga kartor att studera i klassrummet var därför starkt begränsat. Genom internet och annan digital teknik har både lärare och elever tillgång till ett mycket stort antal kartor från i stort sett hela världen på ett sätt som var helt otänkbart tidigare. Kompletterar de tryckta kartorna Kartor i tryckta böcker (till exempel en skolatlas eller en lärobok) följer oftast en gemensam standard när det gäller layout, färger och symboler, något som underlättar förståelsen. Hur kan vi bedöma trovärdigheten? Även kartor kan innehålla värderingar Manipulering av digitala kartor

40 maps that explain the world By Max Fisher By Max Fisher August 12, 2013 Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources. I've included a link for further reading on close to every one. [Additional read: How Ukraine became Ukraine and 40 more maps that explain the world] Click to enlarge.

EasyMapMaker-type batch GOOD Historypin | Home 32 maps that will teach you something new about the world EVER THOUGHT TO YOURSELF, “How many smaller countries could you fit into Australia?” Or possibly, “Which countries in the western hemisphere have legit secessionist movements?” Or, perhaps most pressing of all, “Where does it pay best to be a lifeguard?” We live in the age of the map now, so these are no longer questions you have to continue simply wondering about. Maps are spectacular at conveying a lot of information in a simple image. Did you know, for example, that four breweries control a huge share of the world’s beer market? h/t: Thanks to the MapPorn subreddit for being a great resource for both finding maps and for getting criticism and analysis of those maps.
