5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics | 21st Century Libraries | Scoop.it

Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs. The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated.

These tools are mostly web-based and provide ways in which students can visually represent their ideas. 

Stephan Hughes's curator insight, October 21, 2014 9:27 AM

Getting students to create infographics and using them ourselves to present information are more than justifiable reasons for these kind of tools

60 iPad Productivity Apps For Modern Teachers

60 iPad Productivity Apps For Modern Teachers | 21st Century Libraries | Scoop.it

But technology may be able to help. This list, for example. We’ve offered ideas in the past to helpteachers save time, but those can only do so much. As can these apps, but every little bit helps, yes? Your workload, grade level, school climate, personal organizational habits–even beliefs about what a teacher is supposed to be and do all matter more than an app, but if you’re mobile and connected, you at least have a chance.

From RSS readers to social readers to to-do lists to calendar apps to note-taking and cloud-based document editing and more, this list has to have something that can improve the efficiency of what you do.

Assuming you have an iPad.
