Thoughts on Teaching Statistics

There was a tweet in my feed this morning that simply said: "Now that's how you present statistics ".  I'm glad that I took this tweet seriously, because the next 5 minutes or so of watching Hans Rosling talk about the "Joy of Stats" was a real treat.  I can only imagine what some of these talks would have done this semester if I would have showed them at specific points throughout the semester in order to show why statistics is even useful, or how it is even used on display in the world around us.
