While students are in our classrooms every school day, all over the world, people are creating, sharing, and consuming information.  Every second, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Skype, and other social media outlets are connecting people and ideas.

It begs the question, just how much real-time learning is happening in our classrooms today?

This real-time infographic from Penny Stocks Lab helps put into perspective how quickly data is generated and shared on some of the most prominent internet sites by updating totals with estimated data every 60 seconds: http://pennystocks.la/internet-in-real-time/

This is a powerful resource to let run in the background during meetings, PD sessions, parent workshops, etc. as a reminder of much information is created and consumed during such a short timeframe and to spark some interesting conversations about what being “college and career ready” really means today.
