It was a post by Stephen Downes yesterday that led me to investigate this resource. EducationEye is a visualization that attempts to map innovation in education. Once you get past the opening defaults, it’s time to get serious and do some searching. So, I decided to check out Stephen and did a search for “Downes”.
Interesting arrangement of results. They are colour coded by type. The green dots represent inspiration; the purple practice, and so on. The legend is a flyout on the left.
So, how about me. I did a search for “dougpete” and got this.
Hmmm. No inspiration but lots of industry.
So, let’s get past the ego search and look for a topic. I’ll do a search for “education”.
There are filters to zero in on relevancy and a timeline. I like the concept and am going to spend some time working this. If it works as promised, it could be a quick launch for finding and classifying relevant educational resources.
