Do you know XPLANE? If you don't, you should. XPLANE is a hot information design consultancy that works with some of the best organizations on the planet to help them create better understanding. They solve problems through visual collaboration and work to simplify complexity. And the XPLANE head quarters is located in one of America's most creative, most livable cities: Portland, Oregon. I've been a fan of XPLANE's work and their founder Dave Gray now for years. Today I was poking around their awesome website when I stumbled upon these two video presentations below. You may enjoy these — teachers especially may be interested in them. I'm not sure how they were made, but both look to be created in nothing more than off-the-shelf slideware (plus a bit of Photoshop & Illustrator I suppose). Regardless of the software, these visuals are very simple, clear, and effective. Good lessons in here. (Update: Slides produced in Keynote.)
