Making History Come Alive

In this Edutopia article, middle school teacher James Earle uses visualization technology to make the Illiad comprehensible and fun for students.  His students made infographics representing every instance of “rage” encountered in the text.  The theme gave students a purpose and the infographic required students use data management and design thinking skills.  Sounds like 21st century learning to me!
