Trying to find a way to introduce someone to the internet and the digital world when it’s foreign to them (and they don’t like computers) is tough. But you can make that task easier by picking the right hardware.
The 2018 Winter Olympics are currently underway in South Korea. You can ask Google to find the current medal count for you, but you’ll get a very brief list on the side of the page with very little information. This tool from mapping company Esri, on the other hand, lets you break down medals by category and see where each country is on a map.
The tool shows cards for each country displaying their total medal count in a given category. You can filter by gold, silver, and bronze medals, as well as all medals overall. Click on the card for a given country and you’ll see their medal count in all four categories.
Even more useful than that, you can see a dot on the map for each country competing in the Winter Olympics. This is a handy little feature if you want to teach your young ones where the other countries they’re watching are in the world (or if you want to refresh yourself on the geography you’ve forgotten since high school).
