3. 37 Maps That Convey the Diversity of America's Immigrants
American politicians, and Americans themselves, refer to the United States as "a nation of immigrants"—a place where everyone's family has, at some point, chosen to come to seek freedom or a better life. It's impossible to understand America today without knowing who's been kept out, who's been let in, and how they've been treated once they arrive. These 37 maps convey the hidden diversity of America's immigrants.

4. Better Lesson
BetterLesson's personalized coaching pairs teachers with a personal virtual coach. Together they systematically identify and tackle the teacher's most pressing classroom challenges, trying proven instructional strategies, handpicked to meet the needs of the teacher's students.

5. Autism Games
Autism Games assists children with moderate to severe autism to develop independent living skills. Autism Games integrates two websites:, a site for parents and teachers that provides instructions for using the free games and indicates their purpose; and, the portal through which children can access the games, with parental controls to limit other computer and internet functions. Each game reinforces keywords, such as "special activity," so that in-game learning can be transferred into real-world situations.
