NBC Education Nation Scorecard for Schools

We just finished a project in conjunction with NBC News and The Gates Foundation related to education.  The national scorecard allows parents to locate available school performance data, compare schools within districts and see state results. Do you know what state has the highest high school graduation rate in the country — or the lowest?

The scorecard was also featured on the Today Show last week, where Vicki Phillips, director of education for The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the PTA’s Byron Garrett showed how Scorecard software can make a big difference in understanding your child’s education:

GE Data Visualization

GE has just launched two visualization sites. We worked on the design for the first, which is an easy to access resource of the work they’ve been doing over the past year across healthymagination and ecomagination and can be found here: ge.com/visualization

You’ll find a lot of our work there — as well as work by Pentagram, David McCandless, Good and others.

If this gets you inspired, the other site was launched in conjunction with Seed and offers open challenges for those interested: visualizing.org.
