I often present good infographics and here is someone obsessed with them with lots and lots of (some) quality links. I particularly want to think about infographics for assessment.

PitchWorx's comment, November 18, 2014 6:04 AM
Absolutely correct! As we’re an infographic design company, we totally agree with you. Creating Infographic, it helps to communicate effectively with the target audience. They help brands communicate in a more powerful manner!
The Rice Process's curator insight, November 18, 2014 9:40 AM

I find infographics an effective way to present information and data. Because infographics use a combination of images, words, and numbers, it effectively communicates the content both verbally and visually. Learning concepts and relationships can easily be conveyed through a well-designed infographic. Infographics tap the verbal senses through words, phrases, sentences, and captions; and the images and graphic representations bombarded the visual senses. Consequently, infographics present the greatest opportunity to increase the effectiveness of what is being taught.

 

Designing visual representation of information is more than translating words to pictorials.  The construction involves filtering the information, drawing relationships, revealing patterns and representing the information as meaningful content.

Much attention is being spent preparing for the Common Core standards and the call for increasing the amount of nonfiction and informational text in classrooms. Perhaps we should begin by focusing attention on the classroom environment and making certain that it is a place that supports and encourages literacy learning.


A literacy-rich environment not only supports the standards set by the Common Core, but also provides a setting that encourages and supports speaking, listening, reading, and writing in a variety of authentic ways – through print & digital media.

Linguistic Family Tree

Linguistic Family Tree | AdLit | Scoop.it

"When linguists talk about the historical relationship between languages, they use a tree metaphor. An ancient source (say, Indo-European) has various branches (e.g., Romance, Germanic), which themselves have branches (West Germanic, North Germanic), which feed into specific languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian).  Minna Sundberg, creator of the webcomic Stand Still. Stay Silent, a story set in a lushly imagined post-apocalyptic Nordic world, has drawn the antidote to the boring linguistic tree diagram."

Sreya Ayinala's curator insight, December 2, 2014 9:50 PM

Unit 3 Cultural Patterns and Processes (Language)

      The image shows how many languages are related and have many common ancestors. Languages are grouped into language families and are even more broadly categorized.

      Language is a huge part of culture and it is the way that people communicate amongst each other. There are hundreds of languages in our world, but as globalization and pop culture diffuse many languages are being lost and no longer spoken. A good example of a dead language would be Latin. Many of our common day languages trace their roots back to Latin, but no one speaks Latin anymore.

Cade Bruce's curator insight, March 19, 7:09 PM

This falls under the category of language because it shows the origin, relationship, diffusion, and geography of different religions. It can also be used to tell how specific words originated by knowing the language it branched from.

This infographic looks at the brain and how we learn. As more is learned about the brain it is clear that education is not a one-size-fits all.

* Learn how the occipital lobe, Wernicke's area, Broca's area and auditory processing impacts reading. 

* Read three examples that show brain plasticity (the ability of the brain to change over time).

* And find out how struggling readers can be helped at a neurological level.

Some additional resources are also included.

We have many students who struggle with reading. This infographic provides information that you may want to share with parents.

Secrets of a Killer Blog Post: Images [infographic] | AdLit | Scoop.it

You already know that well-researched, high-quality content is the backbone of a killer blog post. But don’t underestimate the importance of a strong visual component when you’re composing your latest and greatest update for your audience

The human brain processes images in as little as 13 milliseconds—less than the blink of an eye.

A post with an image is far more enticing to the bounce-happy readers of the Internet than one without, and is more likely to be shared on social media as well.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 13, 2013 11:16 PM

Approximately one in five Americans is illiterate, which is defined as lacking "the basic skills beyond a 4th grade level." This infographic explores this issue in some detail, beginning with definign the types of literacy as:

* Prose - reading news, stories, instructional materials

* Documents - forms such as job applications, maps, food labels

* Quantitave - balancing a checkbook, ordering items

From there it goes on to explore American's Literacy Levels (of which there are five). It probably will come as no surprise to learn that 50% of people at Level 1 (the most basic skills) live in poverty, but many other statistics are also found in this infographic. Additonal sections include a closer look at illiteracy, and the consequences of illiteracy.

This infographic makes me wonder how many of the children that we see struggling with literacy at school may have other family members who have similar issues.
