Despite enormous amounts of data about how our world is changing and unprecedented access to it, our society still seems to be blind to what's happening around us. A professor founded Gapmider to combat this reality and reveal important data in fun and engaging ways. The Gapminder site includes data sets, videos, downloads, and even a section built specifically to help teachers use the tools in their classrooms.
This site is affiliated with Teach the Future, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing futures thinking to classrooms around the world.
