Infographics (short for information graphics) are neat visual tools that can be used to convey several different topics. The use of colorful graphics and clear concise text makes organizing information a snap and allows teachers to present this information in a nice visual matter. Students benefit by the fact that they are not overwhelmed by lots of text and they don’t have to listen to the teacher lecture them on the stats and facts that can otherwise be shown by the infographic. There are also several sites that allow folks to create their own for FREE (see the resources below.) This post will share some of the resources I have collected on infographics.
I would have benefited greatly from these infographics about the English language when I was in school. They probably would have saved me a lot of headaches when I was diagramming sentences. To see all five of them visit this Educational Technology and Mobile Learning post.
