Here is a thought-provoking video about re-conceptualizing data in visual forms. (18.3 minutes in length) Great food for thought, and I would guess quite useful to anyone teaching students about data.

http://www.ted.com/talks/david_mccandless_the_beauty_of_data_visualization.html

and here is David McCandles' homepage http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/ which contains some of the data he spoke about at the TED Talk.

Enjoy!
