Nation of the Month: Lebanon (daily news, historical facts and data in bite-sized chunks)

December 10, 2012

In order to understand politics it is important to have background on the nations around the world, the problem is that there are 196 different countries and reading through the mounds of national data  becomes tedious.

Nation of the Month is a Twitter feed that randomly selects a new nation each month and tweets a daily mixture of  historical information, current events and relevant data.

It’s a fun way to learn a variety of new information without taking a lot of time out of the day.  I think it could also be a good resource for the younger generation; these days schools  are more interested in getting students to pass state tests rather than planting seeds of fun information that can grow and foster curiosity.  Pouring in the information in smaller doses allows time for the data to percolate throughout the brain, generate that curiosity and stick  in memory.

This month’s nation is “Lebanon” and  the Twitter feed can be found here.
