I'm rather partial to infographics or 'data visualisation'. In the right hands, an infographic can make complex information accessible and interesting. This blog post not only contains links to a number of really useful tools for the creation of infographics, but also made me realise that their scope is so much wider than I had imagined. Better world flux in particular caught my interest: it has the potential to be a fabulous tool for teachers of the social sciences and geography. Sadly I couldn't get the website to run in any of the recommended browsers. Their demo video here shows the potential of the tool (ignore the over-production); hopefully the website will be more accessible to you than to me.

And just in case you think infographics is just a fancy name for a poster, take a look at this one explaining the population explosion.
