Want to give students an idea about globalization, income distribution, and life expectancy? Sen them to this video. It is a presentation from Ted. The presenter does a good job of using data visually (in fact it is an excellent example of how to use data) and shows how to use technology to dig deeper into the data. You can also view the data and software separately at gapminder, which is evidently so good that Google bought it.
