Links You Might Like: September 2011

I plan to showcase a few of my favourite links each month. Many of these show up either in my Google Reader feed or through Delicious. Have a site or post to suggest? Leave your ideas in the comments.
  • The School Data Tutorials from CASTLE are based on the 2003 version of Excel. However, I know a lot of you are in schools where your software hasn't been upgraded in a very long time (and no hope of doing so anytime soon). If you've never (or rarely) opened Excel, or are working off the older software versions, you might want to have a look at these.
  • There are many good ideas contained within How to Create an Infographic: 44 Places to Find Tutorials and Tools. Put together by a K-12 media specialist, the list links to a variety of tools and tips.
  • From Debra Dagliesh's Contextures blog, there is a fascinating Data Entry Worksheet for Excel. It's an example and certainly not ready for classroom use. But my mind is chewing on this. I think there is a lot of potential here---especially with mobile devices. Stay tuned.
  • And finally, I need to be sure to do my best here. Pressure is on now. :)  (For those of you who don't know who Jon Peltier is, he's an Excel expert.) Jennifer Borgioli (@DataDiva) has offered to guest post. Will be awesome to have her lend a voice here.
