Gapminder World Video Collection

The following page lists all the Gapminder World videos I have created. This is a wonderful tool for looking at real life scatter graphs, but far more than that it is a fantastic way to engage students in data and statistics, and how the relate to the real world.

I tend to look at a different graph each half with each year group and challenge them to tell me what it reveals. I have also had success with this as an end of year cross-curricular project, with students pulling in their knowledge of geography, history, citizenship and economics to tell the story of the world! :-)
